The position is typically a win in the workforce. Businesses get eager workers while interns get hands-on experience in a chosen career field.

“Granite Construction, Chugach Corporation, Alyeska Pipeline,” Ketterling said. “And in addition to internships we also offer externships. Internships are within your field of study. Externships are outside your field of study. So we offer those to secondary teachers to get experience in the industries in Alaska and bring that information to their students who are planning their future careers.”
