Internships & Co-Ops
Gain a competitive advantage in the job market by participating in internship and co-op experiences.
Students graduating with internships or co-ops on their resumes are more attractive to employers because they have demonstrated the ability to convert academic knowledge into practical experience.
According to the National Association of Colleges & Employers:
EMPLOYERS WHO SAID CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE IS A FACTOR IN HIRING DECISIONS
STUDENTS WITH A PAID INTERNSHIP THAT RECEIVED AT LEAST ONE JOB OFFER
INTERNS CONVERTED TO FULL-TIME POSITIONS WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION
Benefits of an internship or co-op:
What is the difference between a(n) ?
An Internship is a fixed term professional work experience offered by an employer to undergraduate or graduate students interested in a particular industry, career, or field of study. Both paid and unpaid internships can be completed over the summer or during the academic year and usually last up to 12 weeks. Internships can be full- or part-time.
A Co-Op is typically a full-time, paid position within a company or organization that spans over the course of multiple semesters. There will usually be more training and higher levels of responsibility than with an internship.
