Part One: The What, Why, and Who of Internships

First in a Series  |  By Dean Jordan, VP University & External Relations


From Boston to Berkeley, Beijing, and beyond, faculty and career center staff have asked for one thing universally from CoreNet Global: internships for students. Opportunities for students to learn by doing, enhance their classroom experiences, and allow potential employers to measure the “fit.”

With CoreNet Global’s internship program, Intern Connect, members can post internship opportunities and dedicated CoreNet Global staff share the openings/listings with an exclusive list of faculty and staff contacts at our growing roster of world-class universities where they will get immediate consideration by the best and brightest.

Internships are a proven way for students to gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experience while establishing important connections in the field. Internships are also a way for students to get their feet wet and find out if a specific field is something they could see themselves doing full-time.
