HCU Community Internship Program
Many 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. Internships are also a means of contributing to the professional development of students. The Office of Career and Calling has designed the Community Internship Program for both of these purposes. 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. In developing a process for all employers, our Community Internship Program allows the Office of Career and Calling to be transparent and fair to all eligible students who desire internship placement.
