The Honors College and Academic and Career Excellence (ACE) Center is here to help students find a suitable and relevant internship. Additionally, the Career Resources, provided by the ACE Center, offers a host of services to help students with future employment. This includes resume help and practice on interviewing and networking skills. An exclusive online internship board is also offered where GCU students can discover openings for interns.
