Internships are a great way to “test drive” certain career pathways. In conjunction with many academic departments, the Career Center supports the sourcing of student internships to provide practical work experience, build credentials and provide affirmation of career path choices. The Career Center provides a centralized location of internship postings in the CareerZone. Internships done for credit must be approved through your academic advisor.
Confident, hard working students who have internship, volunteer or work experience in their field are attractive candidates. Those who also display professionalism in behavior and dress as well as strong communication skills stand out. The Career Center offers workshops in all these areas. Take advantage of all of them!
