As an integral part of the academic experience, the entire freshmen class is required to complete an internship as part of their graduation requirements. This unique program has gained national recognition as it better prepares students for the working world or graduate school programs once they leave Queens.
Queens students will first prepare for their internship experience by completing the introductory course INTE 297: The World of Work. This required two credit class guides students to develop important resume writing, interviewing, job search, career research, presentation, and networking skills. Upon completion, students will use what they have learned to obtain an internship. Queens student can complete internships in corporate, nonprofit or service organizations in the Charlotte metro area, nationally, or internationally.
The Internships & Career Programs office helps students navigate the internship search process, approves internship contracts, and monitors student growth through weekly discussions & activities via the Queens online class management system. For more information please contact the Manager of Internship Programs, Sarah Sipperly at 704-337-2366 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
