A recent survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) indicates that employers extended full-time job offers to nearly 70 percent of their interns.
An internship not only will give you an edge over your competition when job searching, but it is a valuable way to try out a potential career field of interest. Many internships take place over the summer, although part-time internship opportunities with local organizations are a great way to gain experience during the academic year. Feel free to contact the Career Center at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding internships.
