The Office of Career Services at Queensborough Community College hosts an Internship/ Cooperative Education Forum once a year. This year it will be held on Wednesday, November 6th, 2013 from 12:30 – 3:30pm in the Student Union. As the Internship Coordinator/Placement Advisor, I will be bringing together representatives from corporations, businesses, the Cooperative Education Coordinators of Queensborough Community College's credit bearing internship classes and you in one place at one time so that you can find out about internships and apply right there. This is not only convenient for you, but can be very exciting, too.
The event features both a forum for the representatives to speak about their organization and answer your questions, followed by a table set up where you can continue the dialog with them individually and submit your resume to apply. QCC Cooperative Education Faculty Coordinators are an important part of the Forum will answer your questions about how you can earn credits toward your degree for doing an internship.
We, in the Office of Career Services at Queensborough Community College, do our best to offer you the finest education and professional development that will serve you well today and in the future. An internship offers you the opportunity to explore your field of endeavor, gain experience that bridges the gap between classroom learning and the real work place, offers companies the chance to see you as a prospective employee in action, it goes on your resume as professional experience and you may even earn credits towards your degree. Certainly this is a win/win situation for everyone.
