Internships at NMC are an opportunity for students to explore career or interest areas, apply classroom theory to a real situation, and gain practical experience for resume building. The internship experience is guided through learning outcomes which build on previous coursework allowing learning to become integrated in a professional setting.
Business and Technical Division internships are a one-time, one-semester work experience.
Internships offer students the opportunity to:
- Gain academic credits towards a degree.
- Gain knowledge and exposure to specific areas of work-related skills.
- Gain experience to build and strengthen your resume.
- Develop a professional network.
Internships are arranged between the student, Experiential Learning Program Coordinator and Cooperative Sponsor, and can be arranged before or during the first half of any semester.
