ICC offers a wide variety of internships, and collaborates with area businesses and organizations. Participating students gain invaluable and practical experience in the corporate setting, while acquiring life skills necessary to thrive post-graduation.
If you are currently enrolled in our AIT, Paralegal, Law Enforcement, Human Services Program, DACT, or Health Services programs, internships are a requirement for degree-seeking students and you should consult your Academic Advisor.
Why Should You Consider an Internship?
Internships are a critical component to acquiring job skills and applying the material you’ve learned in your classes at ICC. A few basic requirements that will need to be met in order to be considered are:
- Must be currently enrolled either as a full-time or part-time student
- Must have successfully completed a minimum of 12 credit hours at ICC
- Must have reviewed your department requirements related to internships – some require specific GPA while others are done by departmental approval only
We work with College Central Network to help coordinate internships. Follow these directions to get started:
- Head over to the College Central Network website
- Scroll to the bottom and select Students
- Develop and access ID and password
- Follow the link to search for available internships (be sure to search for internships; not job postings)
If you wish to receive college credit, do not agree to be interviewed until you have a Faculty Advisor assigned to you.
