The Office of Career Services at Queensborough Community College hosts an Internship & Cooperative Education Forum once a year in the fall. Bring a number of resumes to give to the recruiters.
The Internship Coordinator/Placement Advisor brings together representatives from 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. This is not only convenient for you, but can be very exciting, too, because finding an intenrship uses the same skills as finding a job. Finding and doing an internship will prepare you well to find and do a job and may even turn into a job.
The event features a table set-up for the representatives to speak with you about their organization, answer your questions about their company, about their internships and submit your resume to apply. QCC Cooperative Education Faculty Coordinators are an important part of the Forum and will answer your questions about how you can earn credits toward your degree for doing an internship in the department of your major.
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.
