We get numerous requests from area employers who are seeking qualified job candidates. We encourage our students and graduates to check out our job postings frequently, as the information there changes often. Also, many of the postings are time-sensitive and have deadline or closing dates.
We also get numerous invitations for our students to apply for internships. Some are with nearby government or industry entities, and others are out-of-state or even international. Internships are an excellent way to put your knowledge and skills to work, acquire practical and hands-on experience, make important connections to potential future employers, and begin to develop a work history.
Our internship postings page is a great resource for students interested in the exciting possibilities of being an intern. Please note, though, that while some internships are paid, others are not. But the experience gained can be invaluable to you down the road!
