Internships & Co-Ops
95% of employers said candidate experience is a factor in hiring decisions, according to an annual survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (2016).
Obtaining an internship or co-op during your collegiate career is one of the best ways to land a job after graduation! An internship or a co-op will give you an immeasurable amount of experience in your field of study, while making connections out in the community. Career Services can assist you in securing an internship or co-op before you graduate that will provide you with hands-on experience sought by employers.
