Employers are increasingly wanting to see career-relevant work experience in the new grads they hire. When you gain internship experience, you are increasing the probability of landing full-time employment.
Internships are a great way for you to "test the waters" of your career field and discover your niche in a particular area of study. You'll build your network, your resume, and will gain valuable skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, communication, leadership, and interpersonal skills employers seek. Below are current listings for undergraduate and graduate students. The College partners with a multitude of non-profit organizations and agencies to provide internship opportunities for its students.
