Find an Internship
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is career counseling?
Career counseling is individual or group sessions that help students explore different careers and employment opportunities. Counselors work with students to plan realistic objectives and assist students with mapping out a course of action while in college to achieve their goals after they graduate.
2. What are the requirements for students to secure an internship?
Usually, internships are a part of the academic program in which students are enrolled.
3. What are some advantages of internships?
Internships offer you a chance to learn and discover. You may find out that your dream job really isn’t what you expected. You may even discover a new interest you never knew you had. An internship is NOT a job — it is an opportunity to experience and discover a job’s requirements, both good and bad. The basic objective is learning, not earning money. Internships help students who have earned a specific number of credits to experience first-hand what a career in their chosen field will be like.
Completing an internship is often an excellent way of gaining hands-on employment experience in the same occupational field. Many companies hire their interns as full-time employees after an internship has been completed successfully.
4. Networking while interning
Networking — establishing relationships and connections with company managers, executives and peers in a given field — is one of the most significant advantages interns enjoy. The contacts made during an internship can lead to job openings following your internship, at the same location or other locations. This is particularly valuable if your goal is to conduct business internationally.
