Internships

Wonder how you will meet the 2-3 years’ experience wanted by most employers? A recent study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers found that almost 73% of students who complete an internship receive a job offer.

Internships offer valuable resume-building experiences and the ability to earn college credit at the same time. Whether your internship experiences take place on or off campus, the skills you acquire will help prepare you for your future career.
