Internships and Co-ops

 

Internships

Academic & Career Planning serves as a clearinghouse for incoming internships. If students are interested in earning academic credit for their internship, they will need to work with the faculty coordinator in their academic major. Additionally, students can find information about internships:

  • Online through CareerLink
  • From departmental faculty coordinators
  • Subscriptions to internship email listservs
  • On posters and flyers posted around campus

Once students have located an internship, they should meet with their major’s faculty coordinator to learn how to obtain class credit if academic credit is desired. If students have already completed an internship and would like to gain academic credit through another learning experience, consider Cooperative Education.

 

Cooperative Education

 

Cooperative Education is designed to integrate academic study with paid career-related job experiences. The co-op program, coordinated through Academic & Career Planning, offers perks such as:

  • Earn while you learn
  • Experience working a semester- or summer-long job
  • Receive 1 to 4 credits through COE-302 or COE-403 (150 hours/semester for each credit hour)
  • Build your resume and contacts in your field of interests

 

CareerLink

 

Stay connected and informed of positions (full-time, part-time, internships and co-ops), upcoming events, on campus recruiting, and employer directory information through CareerLink, ACP’s online jobs board, which is accessible to current students and alumnae.

A current and up to date profile on CareerLink further ensures that when opportunities that meet your interest, background, and skills are available, you can be notified through searches you create or targeted emails sent from our office. Current students and alumnae six months from graduation have an active account. If your account appears to be inactive, contact Mary Ellen Philen, (919) 760-8341.
