Dream Jobs

What is a Dream Job?

A dream job is one that matches with your interests and values. But it’s not just a job, it is a potential career.  What better way is there to explore these possibilities than to do it as a high school intern? And, in most cases get paid.

RGHS is one of just a few schools with an APS approved “Job Internship” program and can help you arrange job interview opportunities.  We are looking for students who have transportation. A schedule that accommodates an early release at least two days per week is desirable but some businesses will accept weekend interns.

Advantages of getting one of these RGHS internships positions:

*Elective credit    *Gateway to your dream job or career   *Most are paid positions   *Resume builder
