Now more than ever, employers are highly selective about whom they hire. Virtually all hiring managers prefer to hire graduates who bring real–world experience to their organization. In very real terms, a degree alone may just not be enough to land your dream job. Internships do more than just look good on your resume. You can test–drive the career path that interests you most.
Volunteering is a win-win for everyone: it makes the world a better place; you receive on-the-job training in the "real world"; it strengthens your résumé; it enhances your major field of study; you make professional business contacts and references for future jobs; you gain leadership experience; you could discover potential new career paths; you contribute to a cause that you care about; you have a way to put your religious faith, beliefs and ethics into action.
Our alumni do remarkable things and have incredible experiences in their professional lives. Some entered the work force directly after graduation, others earn professional, master’s and doctoral degrees before beginning their careers.
