Emphasis on Internships Results in Exceptional Opportunities

December 4, 2018

With the right advisor, internship opportunities that might appear out of reach can suddenly rest in the palm of your hand.

At Stonehill, our Career Development Center has an exceptional record of helping students secure placements in highly competitive internship programs; the types of experiences that can define the trajectory of a career. The obvious benefit is being able to show potential employers or graduate school admissions officers that you’ve spent time in the field and have a practical sense of the work involved. But there’s so much more.

At one end is the honing of skills related to time management and professional etiquette; at the other are letters of recommendation and networking opportunities. In between, there are lessons in human nature, group dynamics and approaches to leadership. Stonehill’s career development counselors have seen the payoff countless times and provide an extensive array of preparation programs and a deep well of established internships.

The best part: Stonehill is among the few colleges that offer career development starting the day you arrive. Here’s a sampling of stories that showcase the extensive array of opportunities both nearby and around the world.
