The internship process is competitive. Academic performance, skills, motivation, maturity, attitude, and employment potential will be determining factors.
Students must maintain weekly contact with CCPD staff members during the job-search process.
- Students meet with CCPD staff to clarify their goals and review procedures.
- Students post resumes in Handshake.
- Upon receipt of the internship application and resume approval, students are eligible to apply for internships electronically.
- Students should research organizations via the company website and utilize Handshake, Indeed, and/or CareerShift.
Students also may secure an internship utilizing their own networks. These opportunities must be “quality learning experiences” worthy of academic credit and must be approved by a CCPD staff member.
If a student is petitioning an already existing job for internship credit, it must be determined that new learning will be occurring in order for credit to be awarded.
Students will complete internship and coursework requirements for a 15-week semester, approximately 10 to 30 hours per week.
Staff will register the student for appropriate course and credits.
Any internship work-related problems must be reported to The Center for Career and Professional Development and the student’s faculty coordinator immediately.
