Welcome to the Internship Program at Monroe College! Internships can be exciting adventures in experiential learning. The Internship Program offers you an excellent opportunity to prepare for your professional career with planned work experiences which compliment your academic program.
PREPARATION + PRACTICE = PROFESSIONAL POSITION!
The PRACTICE part of this equation is an internship and students gain invaluable experience, practice and even job offers directly from their internship experience.
As in many other aspects of life, the benefits you receive from the Internship will be directly related to the effort you invest. The Office of Career Advancement will assist you in acquiring challenging work assignments in your field of interest, but your ultimate success in the program will depend upon your own initiative and ability.
There is an impressive roster of internship opportunities from many well known companies and agencies available to you. There is Mustang JobLink, our job and internship database, or visit the OCA for assistance with your search.
