Grade 11 students and ZIS alumni have the opportunity to take part in an optional Internship Program. The program includes workshops for current students to learn the basic skills needed to find a job, including CV and letter writing and interview skills.

Students then have the opportunity to apply for an unpaid summer internship, usually for two to six weeks, during the summer — and they can do the workshops even if they do not intend to apply for an internship. If you are interested in offering an internship, please contact Dale Braunschweig at dbraunschweig@zis.ch.
