These sessions can focus on various career-related topics, such as resume building, interview preparation, networking skills, and more. Our aim is to complement your curriculum and provide practical insights that align with classroom learning.
  2. Internship Support: Our department actively assists students in finding internships that align with their academic and career interests. We encourage you to inform us of any potential internship opportunities you come across. By collaborating, we can help students secure valuable experiential learning opportunities. Internship forms are located on the LibGuide website.
