The Career Center assists students in achievements and learning toward their professional goals. Whether it is determining what a student can do in their major, writing a resume and cover letter, or networking with alumni and professionals in their future careers, the career counselors will help your student with their career needs. To keep you informed, they also put together a list of topics you should know and discuss with your student.
An internship is a short-term work experience in which your student receives training and gains experience in a field or career area relative to their major. They allow your student the opportunity to explore careers and apply what they are learning in the classroom.
Internships may be full or part-time depending on the time of year they are completed. They may last from 90 days to a semester or longer. Internships are available in a variety of fields including healthcare, education, business, arts, and science disciplines. They may occur in the private sector, government, or in not-for-profit organizations.
