Southeast Community College students are highly sought-after, thanks in part to their participation in the Internship Education experience.
SCC’s program is designed to help employers build a network that leads to the best and brightest students for their workforce. As they bring in talented SCC students for an internship experience, they can answer a variety of questions, including: Does this person match the values of my organization? Are they the right fit talent-wise that I may want on a permanent basis?
Internship Education is a structured educational strategy integrating classroom studies with learning through productive work experiences in a field related to a student’s academic or career goals. It provides progressive experiences in integrating theory and practice. The internship is a partnership among students, SCC and employers, with specified responsibilities for each party. Student objectives are established through mutual agreement by the student, the employer, and the Internship Education Coordinator.
Students register for the Internship Education course and earn college credit for the internship experience. Internship experiences are non-paid employment. The course is designed for students who have completed specific courses in their Program of Study and have achieved a grade-point average of at least 2.0 on a scale of 4.0. Coordinators work closely with employers and students to determine the optimum arrangement.
Internship Education is non-paid employment.
The program has excellent benefits to the employer, the student and the College. To that end, the Internship Education experience is designed to develop or enhance a set of outcomes.
