Internships begin during college classes or when a student begins the job search phase following the completion of training. Often students are hired at their internship site or as a result of connections made while interning. Types of internship sites vary as we attempt to place each student with a site that best meets their skills and previous work experience. Some examples are:
General, Medical, Law, and Academic offices
Social Services and Non-Profit locations
Retail, Display, and Customer Service locations
