Internship/Job Shadow

Securing an internship can be challenging within the first two years of college, but it is so valuable! Here are some reasons why:

  • It goes without saying that hands-on work experience will allow you to develop and refine skills, gain confidence, and therefore make you more competitive in the job environment you have selected for your career.
  • An internship may allow you to explore a career path you had not considered or realize that the career path you had been considering was really not the right fit for you!
  • You may get some immediate financial benefits!
  • You can earn credit for one Exploratory Experience by submitting a reflection after completing twenty hours of internship!
