Internships & Cooperative Education
74% of Employers prefer to hire candidates with relevant work experience acquired through a co-op or internship.
The O’Brien Center for Student Success supports students as they begin researching experiential learning opportunities. At the O’Brien Center, we offer students the opportunity to take advantage of our Internship and Cooperative Education programs that give them the opportunity to use what they have learned in the classroom and apply it to the real world. Not only do our Internship and Co-op programs allow you to gain hands-on experience, they will also make you more desirable to future employers.
The value of a co-op job, or an internship, is that it enables you to test your interests, talents and skills in different occupations and find out more about yourself before you graduate.
