Paid Internship Program

Lifeworks offers TWO WEEKS of paid entry-level labor BEFORE businesses extend a job offer. Think of it as a “working interview.”

Internships are paid by Lifeworks. Employers are under no obligation except to offer the job seeker an honest performance review and consideration for any open and appropriate positions.

You always have the option of hiring someone we refer, OR outsourcing to us before making an employment decision.

  • We’re happy to assist in a trial run if that’s what works best for you and your business.
