Program Description

  • Thank you for your interest in the WorkXP Internship Program. Applications to the program are temporarily on hold as we are currently experiencing a huge amount of requests. As MOSAIC will also be closed for its winter break from Dec. 24 – January 2, we expect needing more processing time. The online Application will reopen in the new year. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
