Full-time 2- and 4-year College Students Coping with Financial Stress:
If you’re a collegiate junior or senior interested in a STEM related internship, you may want to take a look at the MechaFORCESM — Registered Internship Manufacturing Program (M-RIMSM). It’s an innovative and impactful internship variation to improve the possibility for you to find full-time employment while continuing your studies on a part-time basis, therefore helping you to reverse the trend of too much debt upon graduation.
Through M-RIMSM, you can become a Registered Intern (RI) at a manufacturing company, working full time with a salary and medical benefits while still maintaining your status as a fully matriculated degree student albeit now as a part-time vs full-time student. As many college students know, when the final year(s) of study is underway, federal financial aid in the form of Pell grants could become unavailable. This is one of the sources of financial stress which so many college students today are facing and which sometimes necessitates dropping out of school. As a program organized and operated by NJIT, M-RIMSM would never want you to abandon your studies entirely. Instead M-RIMSM offers the alternative of a solid and sustainable full-time job and it requires that you continue to study part-time. But M-RIMSM offers a lot more.
Ask yourself if you are interested in any of the following:
- A high-tech, well-paying career
- “Earn while learning” opportunity in a well-paying career in modern advanced manufacturing
- Putting your STEM math skills to work
- Working with state-of-the-art precision equipment
- Earning higher than average wages for the lifetime of your career
- Having a salary to defray the cost of finishing your degree
If the answer is YES, then the M-RIMSM maybe just the opportunity for you.
