Internships & Apprenticeships
Internships provide an opportunity for students to learn in a real-world work environment, and are offered through partnerships with local businesses and organizations.
Employers and students benefit from learning on-the-job.
While the College offers courses in many areas of study, it can be hard to practice the skills you're learning in the classroom in a real-world, work environment. There are practical applications of skills that are best developed in the field, that can simply not be duplicated in the classroom. To learn within a workplace setting, you can pursue an internship in the career field you're interested in. Internships provide an opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment, are often temporary positions, and can be paid or unpaid. The types of skills learned may range from organizational skills, people management, time management, negotiations, and much more. For these reasons alone, an internship proves to be a vital part of your educational program and development as a professional.
Area businesses and companies benefit from stronger connections to potential future employees and the ability to receive additional staff support at little to no cost.
