What is an Internship?

An internship is an opportunity for a student to apply their newly-gained skills working for a host organization in their field of study, as well as an opportunity for an employer to onboard a potential new employee.

Our students in Bilingual Office Administration
Our students in Web and Desktop Programming

Students in our Bilingual Office Administration and Web and Desktop Programming programs are required to find, and successfully complete, an internship as part of their graduation requirements.  Having learned how to write resumes and cover letters, and to use networking strategies and interview techniques, students promote their technical and professional skills to potential employers.  Upon successful completion of an internship, the student graduates and becomes available for hire by the internship employer or others.
