Internships and Community Service
The Office of Internship and Community Service is eager to meet with you to discuss how this unique approach to gaining experience and serving yourself to the community will help you devise an individual plan. Unlike large institutions, this department serves our students through one-on-one counseling to help identify your field of interest, skills, and ability. We take time to help our students identify how to achieve their objectives that complement their academic goals and interests. Our office can then place you into our many established programs.
Why should I do an Internship or Community Service program?
- Uncertain about your future and want to explore various fields?
- Looking for a way to integrate classroom learning with practical experience?
- Are you exploring concentrations or courses and wondering how your choices will influence your career path or graduate school?
- Do you have adequate skills and experience to apply for a job after graduation?
- How can you stand out from the crowd when applying for graduate school?
- Develop skills that will help with your future job search or graduate school plans.
Here are some of our offered programs:
Whether you’re wondering how to begin exploring and thinking about how to fine tune your skills for graduate school or entering the job market, seeking advice and engaging with an internship or community service program will be very important. If you are undecided about what might be a good fit for you as you prepare for your future, we are here for you!
There is a tremendous emphasis on having experience through internships in today’s complex and demanding global society. Today’s students drive the demands that companies and graduate schools are looking for. Would you hire someone that did not have any work experience? Academics are highly emphasized and in this global economy is a standard so what sets you apart from the others? Will you be prepared for the real world when you graduate? Don’t let your time as an undergraduate go by without gaining much needed skill, experience and ability to compete globally!
