Career and Calling: Things You Need To Know In October

The Office of Career and Calling has designed the Community Internship Program to contribute to the professional development of HCU students. In addition, companies use Internships as a means of filling entry-level roles with students who have already been trained and are ready to engage as a valuable employee. We have put processes in place to ensure that students are prepared and confident when engaging employers. Likewise we engage employers to be partners in order to facilitate placement for students into relevant internship positions. Read more about the Community Internship Program @
