Internships & Careers

Programs for students

Your Career choice should definitely be something you are passionate about. “Your Passion” Something you love so much you will do for free!  Shadowing or experiencing is going to be your answer to make sure you really love what you chose.  How many people do you hear all the time say, “I hate my job”, or “I don’t want to go to work”, or “I wish I would have…”, well don’t let that be you.  You can make sure you are doing what you love.  We suggest while you are in school from the beginning, please do Internships.

An internship allows you to gain experience in a certain field you are studying or majoring in and also it helps you build your resume. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to see if you like a particular field or not. Remember this is something you will be doing as a career so you want to make sure you like it and you are not taking a job for certain benefits or just for the money.  

Most internships start interviewing first quarter January-March so you should start looking in the fall of your school year.  Every major company has internships. Companies use internships as a way to find new talent individuals like you.  Also, it helps companies with their diversity goals.  Diversity is key to a company’s success.  They need individuals from all backgrounds so they can serve their customers or create the best products.

Here are some great resources for you to discover who you are and what fields may be of interest to you:
