At NESCom we place a high priority on providing students with an opportunity for gaining professional experience while in school. Internships, unpaid work experiences for which academic credit is earned, can be arranged for students entering their junior or senior year.
Internships require both a minimum grade point average and a faculty recommendation. The internship includes 135 hours of training at an outside organization. Students are awarded three credits upon completion and will be graded on ability, determination, and interest.
NESCom has arranged internships at a wide range of business throughout the entire country. The student’s interests and skill set are matched with an appropriate company. Marketing Communications students have done internships at the following organizations:
"NESCom prepared me for my career by taking me out of the classroom and into the community to strengthen my skills. The opportunity to work with real clients on real projects gave me the chance to apply everything I had learned to help local businesses and organizations. My classmates and I were no longer learning about real life situations-we were practicing them. This is a valuable experience every student should be fortunate enough to have."
