Internships

Internships

Career Connections connects students with quality internship experiences, liaises with employers to establish learning-centered opportunities, and networks with faculty to provide for-credit opportunities and to enhance student learning. For students, internship experiences are invaluable at bridging classroom learning in the professional workplace, exploring career goals, gaining hands-on experience, and meaningfully contributing to a company or organization of interest. For employers, interns bring valuable insight, energy, and ideas to new and existing projects and operations.
