Work Experience and Internship Courses

Students learn to apply 21st century skills, also known as "soft skills," in a work environment.   Soft skills include teamwork, effective communication, time management, adaptability, and problem solving. The skills you learn in a Work Experience course will help you to become the kind of employee employers want to hire, retain, and promote.  A recent survey of students who took a Work Experience course determined 93% said the course was "beneficial," and 62% said it contributed to their receiving increased job responsibilities, higher salary or a promotion.
