Nine Central New York students will be making the easy transition from an internship right into a paid position after a first-ever job signing day at LeMoyne college.  Partners for Education and Business, or PEB, modeled the event after letter-of-intent signings for athletes.   Ailiyah Morris will be taking a job at commercial laundry equipment manufacturer GA Braun after she graduates from the Institute of Technology this month.  She says the company began its relationship when she started 9th grade.  She took an internship in her junior year.
