Internships are a key part of Champlain's career-focused education. Positions in your field give you an insider's knowledge of your future career, real-world skills, and the chance to explore your interests.
Our students are prized interns, many securing paid internships at renowned firms, businesses, and organizations.
Because of Champlain's Upside-Down Curriculum, you will already have usable knowledge of your field at the end of your first year. This early experience with the actual work of your field—not just the theory—is why so many employers can't wait to hire a Champlain student.
Another benefit to starting your International Business classes in your first year is that you'll be able to participate in multiple internships over your time in college, making your résumé stand out to future employers.
Plus, you'll be in Burlington, Vermont—a town thriving with innovative businesses that trade and partner with companies in locations like Canada, China, Taiwan, Japan, and more—giving you many career-building learning opportunities.
We want you to be well prepared for your first internship, externship, or other fieldwork. After your first year of exploratory practical education, you'll be ready to work with your Career Advisor to take the next step.
Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain graduates receive full- and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships or externships.
