We’re proud to say that 91% of our students complete internships before they graduate. The level of support our students receive to secure meaningful internships early on in their college career is an important differentiator of our distinctive career-focused approach.
On October 19, Champlain College Career Services hosted its annual Internship & Part-Time Job Fair, a networking-type career fair offering students, alumni, and employer partners the chance to meet in person and talk about goals and opportunities. More than 75 employers attended representing various non-profit and for-profit institutions from Burlington, Vermont, and beyond. Among those present were Dealer.com, Green Mountain Concert Service, Seven Days, Fuse, Willington Design & Print and ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center.
Over 400 Champlain College students from all degree programs, even students from other colleges, alumni and other job seekers from across the state came to take advantage of this powerful event. Students connected with employer representatives, worked on résumés and began networking for internships and/or full- or part-time job opportunities.
The Internship & Part-Time Job Fair followed the Sophomore Symposium, an event also geared to engage and inspire students to start thinking about their future careers.
The Symposium keynote speaker and blogger, Lauren Berger, “The Intern Queen,” emphasized internships’ importance during college.
