How will I get real-world experience while I pursue my degree?
After college comes career. In this video, Norwich University Career and Internship Associate Director Meghan Oliver discusses services to help students gain experience and position themselves for the job market ahead.
During the academic year, Oliver said, the center helps place students in internships with Vermont businesses and agencies or on campus, where students will work with faculty. Some internships, she said, let students collect college credit while they earn cash.
In the summer, Oliver said, many students do summer internships in their home cities and towns, but others may go elsewhere for opportunities offered by the university’s alumni and business contacts.
Beyond internships, the center and its peer career coaches help students sharpen cover letters, polish résumés, leverage LinkedIn and build brands.
For convenient, personalized service, Oliver said the center has for a decade offered myriad resources, including the Big Interview training module, online, where students can access them anytime, anywhere.
“We all work with you to make sure you’re getting all the tools you need to be successful in your career and your career management,” Oliver said. “So you know exactly what you need to do and are capable of doing this for the rest of your life.”
