Internship Opportunities

Internships will provide you with valuable experience essential for building your resume and landing the job of your dreams!

The Diploma is no longer enough! You must obtain internships to gain the necessary experience required in the job application process. Your experience and connections will set you apart from the rest.

What exactly is an internship? An internship is an opportunity offered by an employer to potential employees, called “interns”, to work at a firm for a fixed, limited period of time. Interns are usually undergraduates or students, and most internships last for any length of time between one week and 12 months.

Why are internships so important? Internships are a proven way to gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experience while establishing important connections in the field. Internships are also a way to get your feet wet and find out if a specific field is something you could see yourself doing as a full-time job.

What is job shadowing? Job shadowing is following a participant (employer volunteer) at their workplace to gather information about their job, career field and the kind of preparation you need to enter their profession.

Who may participate in job shadowing? Both students and alumni are eligible for job shadowing positions.

How do I get started? Make an appointment with the career counselor to discuss your internship/job shadowing options. Check out CareerBeam and CareerShift to get a head start looking over some available internship positions.
