Internship Programs

Internships enable students to gain valuable career related experience in their chosen fields at a pre-professional level. We are eager to learn about what you have to offer and can assist you in developing a successful internship program. The Center for Career Development will work closely with you and the students throughout this process.

The Employer Career Resource Network
A great way to connect with students and to educate them about your industry, company, or career field is to conduct a workshop on a professional development topic such as: "What employers look for in employees", resume writing, phone interviewing, completing on-line job applications, interviewing, networking, leadership styles, managing people, transitioning to the world of work.” We are open to topics! Please call to discuss your ideas.

Employers also serve as mentors, give class presentations on course work being studied, and have worked with us to create externship opportunities.
