About Spring 2019 Internship Program

At some point in your high school career, you’re probably going to start to consider an old childhood question a little more seriously. What do you want to be when you grow up? And, if you’re like most high school students, the answer still isn’t crystal clear. That’s alright, and in fact it’s 100% normal. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to explore your interests and various career fields before you take the leap to committing to a certain program or college major.

Internships are a great way for high school students to gain work experience, learn about professional opportunities, and network within career and academic fields.
