With a robust internship program and events such as career fairs, on-campus interview opportunities, employer panels and more, Emmanuel offers a range of resources for employers seeking to recruit Emmanuel students.
The Internship Program
The College recognizes that internships and experiential learning are high-impact practices and instrumental to the success of students and graduates. Real-world experiences are a standard component of the undergraduate curriculum, with 100% of students participating in an experiential learning opportunity before graduation. Students work in collaboration with their faculty supervisor and Career Advisor to determine the opportunities that are the best fi t for their major requirements and career aspirations.
What is an Internship?
Emmanuel College defines an internship as a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths.
Quality internship experiences should have a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications. Learning objectives and goals should be clearly defined and related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework. Students should be supervised and provided with routine feedback by an experienced professional with educational and/or professional background in the field.
