WEX and Educate Maine are excited to announce and invite Maine high school students to participate in the WEX Junior Associate Program. This program provides job shadowing opportunities for high school students at WEX offices in southern Maine. Students from participating schools will join WEX employees to learn more about future career opportunities.
Students will be able to participate in projects to further their knowledge and skills in technology and business, gain an early payments industry knowledge, and network with our senior leaders. During the experience students will be paired with particular departments depending on their career interests. Participating departments include human resources, legal, finance, information technology, and marketing.
The WEX Junior Associate Program takes place during the two school vacations in the spring. This year those dates are February 19, 2019 to February 22, 2019 and April 15, 2019 to April 19, 2019. Students attend from 9:00am until 4:00pm each day. Although students are encouraged to participate in both weeks of the program, students can opt for one week if necessary.
Maine high school juniors and seniors can apply to participate in the program. Students need to have daily transportation to the South Portland area during each school break. Homeschooled students are also welcome to apply.
