Completing an internship is one of the most marketable experiences you can have on your resume and it allows you to stand out during the job search. This course will provide you with the opportunity to complete projects related to your career goals under the supervision of an experienced practitioner in the field. By the end of the internship, you will have first-hand knowledge of trends in the field, the skills necessary to be employable after graduation and the importance of networking. Everyone will set goals from the beginning of the course about what you want to accomplish at your internship and be able to self-reflect about the progress made at the end of the term.
This course helps with both job-specific skills and transferable skills in that you are applying the skills learned from previous courses and obtaining new skills while completing the internship. Emphasis will be placed on connecting internship experiences to post-graduation goals and having students articulate their accomplishments from the internship. There will also be a focus on giving and receiving feedback in a professional setting.
