Internships and Career Programs

Connecting Students. Developing Professionals.

Down

Experience matters.

That’s why 100% of our traditional undergrads complete internships. This has proven results: 61% of students with internships have a job offer in hand by the winter of their senior year, compared with just 28% of students without an internship.

More Than an Internship

Here, you get more than an internship. You get career preparation. Relationships. Your experience will help you translate a well-rounded education into a successful career.

Our curriculum incorporates professional skills each year, our small size means that staff and faculty will know you personally so that they can connect you to the right opportunities beyond campus. 

Our Vandiver Center for Career Development ensures that you have the skills, resources, and connections to succeed. Our center is set up like a corporate office, so you can begin to feel comfortable in interview rooms and conference rooms before graduation. From here, you’ll take this knowledge, experience, and confidence with you into work in Charlotte and even around the world. See the results:
