Student Resources

All GC majors are required to complete at least two internships to receive their degree, with many students completing three. Students are encouraged to work in different geographic locations, process areas and segments of the industry to gain a broad experience in the workplace. Employers are making an investment in your education, and you want to make the most of that. The contacts you make and the experiences you gain will serve you well when it comes to finding permanent employment.

As of January 1, 2019, all students must be employed full-time and be paid like a regular employee in order to get credit for either of the 2 required internships. This is to protect the student, university and employer against any liability. Pay rates vary greatly depending upon employer size and location and may be as little as minimum wage. Most of our internship partners pay between $10 to $17 an hour. There is no exception for non-profits or government agencies.

The next Intern Employer Day is:
Tuesday, October 13, 2020, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This will be a Virtual Event - More Information to Come
