Internships are a vital component of the career development process. Curry College provides students with the ability to gain real-world and professional experience outside the classroom for which they receive class credit. The internship program focuses on the growth and development of the student and helps build valuable partnerships with employers. For more information regarding the program, site qualifications, and requirements, please visit our Internship Program page.
*Curry College does not require that Internship Sites pay student interns. For-profit internship sites should review the Department of Labor's legal criteria for determining whether an internship needs to be a paid experience.
Participate in a career event
The Center for Career Development strives to produce meaningful and effective career events for students from all class years. Throughout the academic year, we provide students and employers the opportunity to network on the Curry College campus. Some of these events include:
Career & Internship Fair
The Career & Internship Fair connects students to job and internship opportunities. Undergraduate students as well as graduating seniors, attend this event to speak individually with recruiters and company representatives about job and internship opportunities. This events occurs annually during the spring semester.
There is no better way to learn about an organization, its people, and its culture than to experience them first-hand. Future Fridays gives students the opportunity to meet employers, tour their offices, and gain insights into a specific industry and functional area. This company visit program is held on five consecutive Fridays during the fall and spring semesters.
The annual Senior Conference is Curry's premier career preparation event for graduating seniors. This half-day professional conference includes a keynote speaker and career workshops on topics including advanced resume writing, job searching, networking, and interviewing skills. This event occurs at the start of the spring semester and is intended to prepare seniors for their spring job search.
