Kick-start your career with an internship

A recent study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers found that about 70% of interns receive a job offer after completing an internship.

Internships offer valuable resume-building experiences while potentially earning college credit at the same time. Please check with your Academic Advisor to confirm if college credit will apply to your program of study.

Whether your internship experience takes place on or off campus, the skills you acquire will help prepare you for your future career.
