For more information on path courses, including internship opportunities in your area, please visit the jobaktiv website. Path placements do not necessarily result in an ongoing job, but a host employer may offer an internship at any time if it believes that an intern has demonstrated his or her skills. Although host employers do not pay or pay salaries to members during internships, they are entitled to a payment of $1,000. This payment is made to the employer by an investment service provider, who can then request a refund from the government. Path courses are voluntary and run 30 to 50 hours per 14 days, over four to twelve weeks. Interns do not receive payment from the employer during this period, but they can continue to receive their normal income allowances and are also entitled to an additional incentive payment of $200 for 14 days. Path internships are short-term internships in the workplace that allow young people to demonstrate their skills with a potential employer, develop their professional skills and improve their job prospects. At the same time, employers have the opportunity to experiment with young job seekers in the context of a structured internship to see if they are fit for their business. Employers and placement service providers are offering internship opportunities at paTH from April 1, 2017.
