The International Business Internship Program

 

Purpose

The International Business Internship program provides students with an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge acquired in their coursework in a business environment while earning three hours of academic credit.

 

Benefits

Participating in an internship allows you to gain a better perspective of post graduation employment by applying the principles and theories you’ve developed in the classroom. This practical application creates an easier transition for you from the classroom to the working world. ¨ An internship allows you to further develop a personal work ethic and the opportunity to investigate your career interests and prospective career goals. Additionally, an internship enables you to develop specific skills and knowledge related to your potential career. ¨ An internship facilitates the development of professional contacts. These contacts may be able to help you in the future by acting as a reference for another company, or assist you in securing full-time employment within their company.

Requirements

Have completed (or be in the process of completing) a substantial portion of the International Business AAS/Certificate requirements.

Create a profile on indeed.com and Linkedin to be upload to the intern website.

It is not required, but encouraged that students create a portfolio (samples of your work, projects or outstanding assignments).

If you are interested in an internship, please visit the CEL (Center for Experimental Learning) website to search for available internships, review requirements as well as upload your student profile.

While the CEL assists students in locating employment, it is untilimatly the students responsibility. Students should begin their search for an internship one full semester PRIOR to the actual work semester. This is important because finding a really great internship takes time and you want to be able to devote the appropriate amount of time to avoid feeling rushed or overwhelmed.
