THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF CAPE FOX CORPORATION (CFC) has directed management to prepare an internship training program.  The managers of CFC are committed to implementing a structured training program that will be known as the Cape Fox Shareholder Internship Program.  An intern is a highly motivated individual who may work a minimum of 20 hours per week under the supervision of a manager of Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) or one of its subsidiaries or business partners.  Internships generally will not exceed 20 hours per week as these are part-time, non-exempt positions with no company benefits provided.  Interns are paid a competitive internship wage.  Assignments are made within a variety of departments and disciplines. Internships are a minimum 3 month commitment and are limited to 1 year training in a position.  Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis.

THE PURPOSE – CFC GOAL/MISSION
The purpose of the Cape Fox Shareholder Internship Program is to assist CFC Shareholders, as well as children, grandchildren, and spouses of Shareholders, in finding professional employment within the ANC community.  Whether you’re a recent high school graduate, or receiving your diploma is a distant memory and you are looking to learn new job skills to re-enter the workforce, through the CF Shareholder Internship Program, participants have the opportunity to learn and enhance job skills, knowledge and abilities, and gain marketable experience through valuable on-the-job training.

The intent of the program is to boost job confidence, provide a stepping stone to achieve long-term career goals, and gain structured hands-on work experience side by side with professionals in their field of interest.  The CF Shareholder Internship Program provides practical work experience and allows CFC Shareholders, their children, grandchildren, and spouses to develop marketable skill sets.  Though the program is not limited to summer internship or college attendance as a requirement, if participants are still in school, this opportunity enables a shareholder to combine formal learning with practical experience to improve prospects for employment upon completion of a post-secondary education.  The program can provide a bridge from the classroom to the working world, varying in length and the number of hours worked.  Participants gain real world experience to compliment their studies, while earning cash to help pay for their education.
