Atlantic County Workforce Development Board seeks employers

Most help wanted ads seek employees, but the Atlantic County Workforce Development Board is in need of employers to host paid summer interns.

“This is a great opportunity for the Workforce Development Board to assist both our local businesses and our young job seekers,” Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson said in a statement. “Businesses obtain paid assistance during the peak summer season and job seekers gain valuable experience that may lead them towards a future career.”

Interns ages 16-24 will be available for eight weeks between June and August to assist area businesses 21 hours per week for $10.50 per hour. All earnings will be paid by the Atlantic County Workforce Development Board with funding from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce.

Worksite agreements are available online at:

“We hope to attract employers of varying sizes and occupations to help place as many as 100 individuals,” WDB Executive Director Rhonda Lowery said.
