Current CGU students can learn so much from the wisdom of those who came before them. The Career Development Office wants to learn from your experiences how we can better serve current students. We also want to work with you, and your organization, to provide internship opportunities for students and create a hiring pipeline for career level positions.
- You can host Micro-Internships for CGU students. Micro-Internships are paid, professional projects that generally range from 5-40 hours of work and can be completed remotely. These projects are similar to what is completed during a typical internship and allows students the opportunity to gain “real world” experience they can showcase on their resume and leverage to obtain a future opportunity. If interested contact Michael Sacoto, Assistant Director, Employer Engagement, for more details firstname.lastname@example.org
- An in person internship starting later in the summer and lasting for 5 rather than 10 weeks. If interested contact Michael Sacoto, Assistant Director, Employer Engagement, for more details email@example.com
