In offices across Johns Hopkins campuses Monday, 400 Baltimore City students met the professionals who will guide and mentor them during their eight-week, paid summer internships offered through the Summer Jobs Program, a Hopkins tradition now in its 23rd year.
For the students who attended a reception on the East Baltimore campus, the program began with an opportunity to meet and network with the leaders of the company who helped make their internships possible.
Westnet, a medical and laboratory equipment supplier, sponsored the placement of eight students in STEM internships across Johns Hopkins through an $18,000 donation to the Summer Jobs Program. The company, based in Massachusetts, moved its operations to Baltimore four years ago to strengthen its relationship with Johns Hopkins by participating in the HopkinsLocal initiative, which aims to provide economic support to Baltimore by partnering with city-based businesses to build, hire, and purchase locally.
