BUSINESS AND PUBLIC SERVICES INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

The Business and Public Services Internship Program provides degree-seeking students with the opportunity to apply classroom skills and competencies in a workplace environment.

An internship is a supervised work experience related to the student’s program and career intentions. The internship can be part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid, but the key feature is that the student does meaningful work over a period of time.

Benefits of an Internship

The work experience and professional references that are gained in the process will be helpful in obtaining employment.  Employers view strong job performance and a positive attitude as important factors in hiring interns, as well as full-time employees.  It is the key to new opportunities and long-term career success.

A 2011 study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers revealed that employers extended job offers to 66.7% of their interns. An internship experience offers students a number of benefits:

  • Develop new skills and gain professional work experience which will enhance marketability.
  • Classroom learning becomes more meaningful with real-world experience.
  • Test the career to figure out what type of work setting and industry is right.
  • A great resume builder.
  • Learn from experienced professionals and create a network of current and local contacts – all while earning academic credit.
