The system is easy to use and allows you to review and save job postings, upload your resume and other career documents, apply for positions, and sign up for on-campus interviews.
An internship is a monitored work or volunteer experience where an individual has intentional learning goals and objectives throughout the experience. It serves as a bridge between the classroom and work world, where a student is assigned professional and/or pre-professional tasks and responsibilities. Internships may be paid or unpaid, and can be taken for academic credit. An internship is an amazing way to garner new skills and abilities needed in your field of choice.
