Experiential Learning

Information for Students

Our goal is to provide you with all the tools you need to become a successful professional. We will work together to ensure that you have all the knowledge you will need to apply for internships in an effective way, build a resume that represents the best, professional image of yourself, the skills needed to “ace an interview” and providing support in conducting appropriate follow-up with employers.

Behind the scenes, the Experiential Learning Department is cultivating relationships with employers that are interested in mentoring our students! We receive several internship opportunities throughout each semester. A big part of what we do is arrange for your resume to be sent out to these employers.

One of the first questions the Director will ask you is, “where do you want your career to be in 10 years?” Let’s explore that together!

Information for Employers

The Internship process is quite simple. You will work directly with the Director of Experiential Learning to locate the talent your organization is looking for. Consider Experiential Learning an extension of your Human Resources department. Our objective is to place students in a setting that makes sense for your business and also for the student.

Employers appreciate working with student interns, offering a chance for them to explore their field of study in a real-world setting. Some businesses have small projects and needs that an intern student would be ideal for. While other businesses utilize the student intern experience as a condition of permanent employment. Whether your objective is to be afforded the opportunity to become a mentor for a young professional or to complete a small project, the Experiential Learning department can assist you with this.
