Internships and Placement

Do you know the advantages of completing an internship? Let’s list a few. Employers prefer to hire graduates who’ve gained hands-on experience related to their major. Internships extend your classroom learning into a real-world setting. Internships provide you with an opportunity to reinforce your choice of major and career path. Internships allow you to gain practical experience and transferable skills by working in a professional environment. Internships give you a competitive advantage in the job market because of the knowledge and skills you develop in the position. Internships help you develop a network of professional contacts in your career field. Internships provide insight into your future career. In this presentation Brian Hirsch will be providing an overview of the internship searching process including: Qualifications to intern, Process for applying for internships for credit, Where the opportunities are, and How to use Handshake and LinkedIn to navigate job openings.
