Eleanor Roosevelt once said “When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.” And that is how many people feel. So no matter what your age, background or experience, there are plenty of opportunities out there to learn, and internships is one of them.
The good news is that job growth in picking up. A survey among entrepreneurs reported this week reported that 67% of them plan to add more jobs within the first half of 2014. So while you are looking for a job in a field you prefer, you might consider doing an internship for a short term of time. You can watch out for the summer opportunities ( a month , two, or three). You may also choose to intern for longer than that.
Internships very often turn into full time jobs too, if not just great references and mentors. Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss Internships and how to go about looking for them in the next few months.

Join us this Sunday for a special episode highlighting one of the most incredible non profits in our state. Our special guest will be Shay Farley, J.D. She is the Legal Director at Alabama Appleseed Center for Law and Justice. Shay received her Juris Doctorate from Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery, Alabama in 2003 and began litigating with a small general practice firm. Quickly finding that the laws did little to protect, much less advance, the interests of the voiceless, she committed her energy to policy reparation. Since August 2005, Shay has worked at Alabama Appleseed, a state-level public interest policy advocacy. As Alabama Appleseed's Legal Director, Shay assists the Executive Director in the development and governance of organizational projects, coordinates internships, and manages all of Alabama Appleseed’s legislative activities. In addition, Shay directs Appleseed’s economic justice work, namely Payday and Title Lending Reform and Consumer Debt projects, as well as some criminal justice issues. In 2014, Shay was appointed to the Alabama Prison Reform Task Force by Sen. Cam Ward (R-Alabaster). Shay maintains a deep conviction for utilizing her education to enhance the lives of others, particularly those in need of a voice. As acknowledgment for her devotion, she was honored with the Montgomery Advertiser’s King Spirit Award in 2011. This award recognizes young adults in the community who represent the vision, dedication and selfless spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy.
