Preparing for the Working World
Preparation for a career
College Experience seniors participate in two semester-long paid or unpaid internships. These internships assist students in learning specific job skills, evaluating potential career paths and preparing for competitive employment. The internship coordinator works closely with each student to find an internship in a career field of his/her choosing. Each student is provided with an appropriate level of support until he/she feels confident in completing the job. The cooperating business works collaboratively with the student and internship coordinator to ensure it is a mutually beneficial experience. Academic classes, such as Internship Seminar, provide students with the skills to get and maintain a job.
