In this hectic career environment, many students are looking to gain the upper hand when it comes to job experience. The easiest way to do this is through an internship.
Lucky for Kalamazoo College students, the Center for Career and Professional Development is on their side. On April 26, the Center will host a workshop with the Kalamazoo Chamber of Commerce, entitled “College Interns: An Asset to Your Workplace” at 8 a.m. in the Hicks Banquet Hall.
“We’re really excited about this because it is the first time that Career Development here has partnered with the Chamber in Kalamazoo,” said Joan Hawxhurst, Director or the CCPD. “We hope to encourage more opportunities for K students to gain internships with local businesses.”
The workshop will include presentations from K College interns, as well as from intern supervisors who have hosted K College interns in the past.
“It will be a good experience because it will be our students telling their experiences,” Hawxhurst said.
