Are you currently on the search for an internship? Honors students may choose to participate in an internship to advance their classroom learning, receive real-world experience, network and potentially earn college credit. Here’s how Honors students can utilize their resources to help them find a suitable internship.

Why Are Internships Important?

Nearly every job field is becoming more and more competitive as others begin their careers earlier, with some even finding internships while still in high school. Every student’s goal should be to become the most qualified applicant for their future job. Internships can also help students vet out potential career options, giving them a peek into a job that may or may not be the best fit for them.

The ACE Center

The Academic and Career Excellence (ACE) Center is available to help students find relevant internships. Their career resources are focused on providing the support to help people navigate through their academics to get closer to their goals. These resources not only include identifying job opportunities, but polishing networking and interviewing skills and learning best practices for resumes. The professional knowledge of those in the ACE Center can be invaluable when it comes to transitioning from college to a rewarding and purposeful career.

The Office of Internships

The Office of Internships also offers various services that include preparation workshops and on-campus job and internship fairs, which give students direct access to dozens of potential employers.

Undergraduate students who have completed one academic term at GCU and have a minimum of 36 credits from a GCU-approved institution can complete an Internship Registration packet to get started on the path to finding the best career opportunities.
