Career and Internship Center poised to help students of every year and major gain vital workplace experience
We in the Norwich University Career and Internship Center are safe at home and yes, we’re still working.
Thanks to implementing a new career management platform in 2017, we were able to move to online/digital services within a day or two of the COVID-19 directives. Yes, we prefer to meet with students face to face, but until we can return to in-person visits in our offices, we and our student peer coaches are ready to help remotely.
Without all of the socializing, extracurricular activities and college sports events taking place, students may have found they had a little more time to plan for their eventual entry into the workforce. Luckily for students, career planning is our jam.
All of our resources are on Handshake which you can access through norwich.joinhandshake.com, the Norwich SSO Page and your iPads through the Handshake app.

In place of the Norwich University Spring 2020 Career Fair, the Career and Internship Center hosted Employer Spotlight webinars to let employers inform students about internship and job opportunities; more than 20 Employer Spotlights were booked throughout April. Also, the CIC is developing career-related information sessions that will cover career topics and career chats with alumni and professionals from various industries. Students interested in participating in these events will need to RSVP to receive the webinar links.
Students can search and participate in other online virtual events hosted by employers such as Fidelity and Career Eco; graduate schools such as Psychology Graduate School Fair; federal agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, and military-friendly virtual fairs such as Military Mojo.
It is our privilege to serve you, from the office or from our homes.
