JACKSON - The Trustmark Military Internship Program will begin accepting applications for its fall session in mid June 2014. The internship is scheduled to begin on Sept. 2.

This 12-week, paid internship provides job training, networking opportunities and professional development to military retirees and separatees, as well as active reservists and current members of the National Guard who apply for and are selected to participate in the program. One of the goals of the program is to hire the interns after their successful completion of the program, provided there are available positions that match their respective skills and interests.

Interns participate in up to three, four-week long departmental rotations that are assigned based on their professional skills, educational background and personal interests. Each intern is also provided with two Trustmark mentors who provide professional guidance and coaching throughout the program. The goal is to afford each intern an opportunity for professional growth while he or she learns more about Trustmark and its career opportunities.

"Trustmark honors the commitment to service that the members of our country's military have so distinctly epitomized throughout our nation's history," said Rebecca Vaughn-Furlow, EVP and Human Resources Director for Trustmark. "We are proud to express our gratitude and exercise our commitment to military service by offering professional assistance to former and current military service members through this program."
