Internships are designed to connect knowledge and theory learned in the classroom to paid or unpaid work experiences. Internships are tied to learning objectives and should provide students with major related work experiences. They are a great way to learn more about a career, industry or company. Internships also provide opportunities for students and intern supervisors to develop career mentoring relationships.
Career Services assists students create résumés, search for internship opportunities and with the internship application process. Whether students obtain an internship through Career Services or on their own, in order to receive credit for that internship they will have to discuss that option with their academic department. Each academic department at Housatonic Community College has its own criteria for approving internships and awarding credit.
