Employers agree that the attributes traditionally associated with a liberal arts education, such as the capacity to think critically, communicate clearly and solve problems are the most valuable qualities of new hires. It is easier for an employer to teach a hard skill like proficiency with software applications than soft skills like leadership and intellectual curiosity. As an Arts and Sciences student, you possess a broad scope of knowledge that when combined with career preparation through an internship, creates a sharp competitive advantage in the job market.
An internship is an opportunity to build your resume with hands-on experience and expand your professional network. Employers often use internships as a recruitment tool to evaluate future employees and in many cases, hire their interns after graduation. Below are opportunities offered to College of Arts and Sciences students for you to consider.
