Internship & Job Search Assistance
Whether you are looking for an internship for academic credit or “just” for the experience, Career Services can assist you in finding internship connections and resources to help you build marketable skills and gain professional work experience before and after graduation. We believe that every student should graduate with some type of experience relevant to their career goals! This can take many forms – internship, volunteer work, campus organizations, part-time work, performances, or other involvement. When it comes to job and internship searching, we want to help you work smarter, not harder! Contact us anytime for help with job or internship searching!
