CAREERSOURCE PASCO HERNANDO LAUNCHES INTERN PROGRAM: In order to connect employers and those seeking internship opportunities, CareerSource Pasco Hernando has created a website. The site — pascohernandointern.com — will provide a single location for employers and prospective interns to find open positions throughout Pasco and Hernando counties. The program provides opportunities for individuals who have completed occupational classroom skills training and need to gain job-related skills and knowledge.
