The benefits for students to participate in summer internships is firmly on everyone’s radar; the College, Career Services, employers, students, and parents. For the Class of 2016, according to the 2016 Job Outlook Survey conducted by NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers), “employers…plan to hire 11 percent more college graduates for U.S. jobs this year than in 2015.” Career Services’ Gateway program provides all the resources necessary to assist students with their search.
Upcoming Spring programs, which students can find on the College’s Calendar of Events:
Parents can be an important resource, too! By encouraging your student to engage with Career Services and utilize the resources we provide, you can support your student’s effort to build their career network, create professional documents, and interview effectively. Additionally, if you would like to hire or provide opportunities at your organization for Lafayette interns or seniors/alumni for full-time opportunities, we would be happy to partner with you.
Encourage your student to call or stop in at Career Services on the second floor of Hogg Hall anytime during office hours to learn more about our resources and/or arrange an appointment with a Gateway counselor!
