The college announced this week that internship and job campaign goals have been met for the 2012-2013 academic year.
As part of an effort to increase the capacity of the Career Center, the college asked alumni, parents, community members and trustees to help secure 250 internships or jobs for CC students. The plan exceeded expectations and opened doors throughout the country for eager undergrads and recent alums looking for work or work experience.
Jason Owens, class of 2006 graduate and associate director for employee relations, said that student internships range from jobs in financial advising firms to culinary work.
A new funding campaign to help subsidize and reimburse students working unpaid intern positions provided $273,000 to 79 students, according to a college press release. The bulk of that new funding was paid for by the Board of Trustees and headed by Phil Swan ’84.
