Internship Programs Update
The internship office has been pretty busy this past month. We’ve recently been working hard to develop opportunities with organizations such as IM Flash Technologies, Senator Hatch’s office, and Wasatch Property Management. We’ve also had companies like Target, Wal-Mart, and JC Penny visit the campus to talk about opportunities within their organizations. Both Krystn and Joseph, along with several other great Career Professionals, were able to facilitate lectures to the Great Work, Great Career class last month, and we were all very impressed to see students focused on getting a head start developing their careers.
We are currently focusing on signing up students to participate in the internship course for Spring 2011. We’d like to remind students that if they are currently in a job with business related responsibilities, they may be able to use it for internship credit. Many students have used the internship course as a chance gain more responsibility and experience within their own job.
An internship is a great way to enhance your academic career by getting professional experience while attending school. More and more employers are looking for graduates with more than just a good education behind them. They want students that can hit the ground running. From here on out we would like to highlight different stories from students and companies and their success with internships. Feel free to share some of your own as well.
Students can set an appointment with Krystn Clark or Joseph Banks in BUS 309 to see if their job qualifies and sign up to get academic credit, or, if they are distance students, they can sign up at http://huntsman.usu.edu/internships/htm/approval. They can also contact us with any questions at 435-797-2272.
