Is Your Organization Ready for an Intern?

Our students have a proven record of adding value to many different organizations as interns. The Center for Career and Professional Development abides by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) definition of an internship. An internship experience:

  1. Must be a learning experience that applies knowledge gained from the classroom.
  2. Teaches skills or knowledge that can be transferred to other employment settings.
  3. Has a defined beginning and end and a job description with desired qualifications.
  4. Has clearly defined learning goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
  5. Provides supervision and routine feedback from a professional with expertise in the field.
  6. Provides resources, equipment, and facilities to support learning goals.

What our employers are saying

"I've never had an intern from North Central who didn't have a strong work ethic, which I found to be very impressive. They're pretty go-with-the-flow, but also just eager to have experiences and tackle whatever it is you have thrown at them."

"I have a special spot in my heart for North Central. They have a great program. They truly focus on creating individuals who can communicate effectively, and I think that's a critical skill that some of the schools forget."

 “We continue to have highly reliable interns which helps develop positive relationships with our participants.”

“They show the critical thinking skills that other schools' students do not have. They put their internship as a priority.”

“Very hard working and conscientious.”
