Internships

SENEDIA is the lead for the Real Jobs Rhode Island Defense Industry Partnership grant to implement workforce development plans in Rhode Island in partnership with industry, academic and non-profit partners. The grant provides funding to develop solutions needed to address business and talent needs in the Rhode Island defense and non-defense sectors in IT/Cybersecurity, engineering, business support functions, and for military veterans.

SENEDIA recruits candidates from all Rhode Island schools with relevant programs, Rhode Island residents studying at out-of-state colleges and universities, and military veterans to place with SENEDIA member companies, partner organizations, and other businesses with IT/Cybersecurity, engineering, and business support functions. Internships are on a rolling basis with interns recruited year-round.

SENEDIA, through our Real Jobs RI grant, provides a stipend of $1500 to the intern.

Interns are also afforded the opportunity to take online trainings, paid for by SENEDIA with Real Jobs RI grant funds. Online courses include CompTIA Security+ training with one voucher to take Security+ exam leading to certification; Supply Chain Fundamentals; and Project Management Fundamentals.
