Get Hands-On Experience to Get Ahead
TCI College’s internship program allows you to put classroom theory into real-world practice through on-the-job work experience. Interns are required to work a minimum of 10 to 15 hours per week, but may work more based on mutual agreement with their employer.
Why Pursue an Internship?
- Employers often require candidates have some experience in the field—even for entry level positions.
- An internship can help bridge the experience gap between your degree and employer expectations.
- You’ll have the opportunity to represent TCI College as a field ambassador, showing the caliber of professionals graduating from TCI.
- It provides hands-on experience in your industry, strengthening your skills and résumé.
- There are three types of internships: internships for academic credit (depending on your major), paid internships and unpaid internships.
