Internships and Cooperative Education Opportunities

Internships and cooperative education opportunities (co-ops) allow students to apply classroom knowledge and skills in a real-world setting. There, they gain valuable work experience, hone their talents, and learn more about their chosen field. Highly effective recruiting tools, co-ops and internships allow you to evaluate an individual’s abilities and long-term potential. 

Externship Experience: 

Host a student at your organization for short-term learning opportunities. Choose 2-week; one-week; or one day placements. Engage students on various levels of your organization while utilizing young talent to move your organization forward.
