(CNS Local Life): Cayman Enterprise City (CEC) is now accepting applications from young people interested in working there as summer interns. Enterprise Cayman’s “Summer in the City” internship programme, in its sixth year, aims to place about 20 people throughout the CEC Special Economic Zone (SEZ). The one-to-two-month internships, which include positions within Cayman Tech City, Cayman Commodities and Derivatives City, and Cayman Maritime and Aviation City, is open to Caymanians and residents of the Cayman Islands between the ages of 17 and 25.

Areas of placement cover internet technology, media and video production, science and technology, commodities and derivatives, and maritime and aviation services. The internships offer students hands-on experience and access to knowledge-based career paths in a professional work environment, stated a CEC press release.

Anybody who applies to the programme will also be invited to attend a special networking event, set for 20 July 2018, which will provide students with the opportunity to meet innovative entrepreneurs and business leaders from Cayman and around the globe, and practise their networking skills.

Some internships have led to full-time job placements with SEZ companies, CEC CEO Charlie Kirkconnell noted. “We are committed to helping Caymanian students and jobseekers position themselves for new and innovative careers that are currently being creating amongst the 225 companies now set up within Cayman’s special economic zones,” he said.

Interested candidates can apply online here. The application deadline is 31 March, with interviews taking place 9-20 April. Students who are studying abroad may interview via telephone.
