Bernalillo County students looking for work this summer are encouraged to apply for the county’s Job Mentor Program. Applications for the summer jobs are now being accepted. One-hundred positions are available.
“This program is a wonderful opportunity for Bernalillo County students to get their feet wet in the working world,” says County Manager Tom Zdunek. “The county has real work experience to offer young people who are eager to learn new skills that might spark an interest in a certain career path.”
To be eligible to apply, the student must be currently enrolled in school. Students must be between the ages of 14 and 18 years old. Students who are 14 need a work permit through the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions before applying.
The summer jobs pay $7.50 per hour. Orientation for those selected for the positions is May 29 and the first day of work is June 3. The Job Mentor Program concludes July 26.
The county’s Human Resources Department will strive to place students with various departments throughout the county based on the student’s area of interest.
