Job Details

Thank you for your interest in the Marquis Companies Internship Program. This program has been developed for individuals that have a desire to become part of our Long-Term Care Community.

Marquis believes that the internship should be hands on and totally informed about each department's functions. For a future Marquis employee to understand the day-to-day issues an employee faces, it is recommended that an Intern work side-by-side with employees in those departments.

The Internship is designed to be done for approximately nine (9) weeks. You will spend the majority of your time (7 weeks) with the Social Services Director and will perform a variety of job duties. You will also participate in department rotations to gain a better perspective of a post-acute rehab facility. There will be written summaries that are to be completed after each week.
