Internships are a key part of our career-focused education. Positions in your field give you insider knowledge of your future career options; you'll understand which skills are most relevant on the job, and you can explore your professional interests. You can intern with large and small businesses in the Burlington, Vermont, area during the school year and over the summer. You can also complete internships at home—or anywhere (even abroad!)—during the summer.
Because of Champlain's Upside-Down Curriculum, you will already have extensive knowledge of your field at the end of your first year, making you well qualified for internships starting the summer before your second year. With such a head start, you'll be able to participate in multiple internships over your time in college, making your résumé stand out to future employers.
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.
