State launches site to connect interns, employers

The New Mexico Workforce Solutions and Higher Education Departments Thursday announced a new internet portal to connect college students looking for internships with employers.

Proposed last year by Gov. Susana Martinez, the “Students Work” portal was built by Central New Mexico Community College students. The portal allows college students to browse opportunities and employers to browse potential candidates.

Use is free and available to all New Mexico college students.

“Internships are an important tool for preparing our college students to join the workforce after they graduate,” Martinez said in a news release announcing the site. “By bringing higher education and our business community together to establish this internship portal, we’ll help more students get more of the skills they need to succeed while still in college – in turn helping our employers better fill the positions they need in today’s dynamic workforce.”


Albuquerque Journal and its reporters are committed to telling the stories of our community.
