The Rotary Club of Utica is now accepting applications for paid internships for the Fall 2014 semester.

Full time students that will attend local colleges this fall are encouraged to apply for internships with local businesses and non-profit organizations to gain valuable work experience.

The Rotary Club says one advantage of the internships is that the businesses will be able to evaluate students for possible future employment, which will in turn help keep some of the area's best and brightest in the Mohawk Valley.
