Internships
Internships and volunteer experiences provide an opportunity for students to obtain work experience in their major. Internships allow students to develop technical skills, explore career choice, build confidence, network with people in the field, and transition into a competitive 21st century labor market.

Interested students must apply three or more weeks before classes start and are required to take a weekly one hour career management class. College credit is earned and internships may be paid or non-paid. To apply to an internship or for general questions about the program please see the WEXP Faculty and Staff page.

Employees
The program also assists employed students who are interested in advancing within their existing work environment. Through this program and the approval of the student's employer supervisor, students can apply what they have learned in the classroom to their job. College credit is earned.
