Internship Networking Night

About the Event

For Our Industry Partners

At the School of Leadership and Human Resource Development, we want to provide our students with the best opportunities available while providing you with high quality, entry-level interns and employees. In an effort to develop our students into successful professionals, we require them to gain real-world experience in the HR field. 

We all know the importance of networking in the Human Resources profession, and we want to provide those opportunities to our students who will soon enter the HR field. We also know that experience counts just as much as the degree and it’s our mission to assist our students in getting those valuable internship experiences.

For Students

In today's job market, your degree and GPA isn't always enough to give you a competitive advantage over other candidates. Employers, when selecting candidates, look for two things: Education and Experience. 

Having an HRM/HRD Internship prior to graduation will ensure you that edge over other candidates. On average, 53% of all graduating seniors receive at least one job offer. Of that, 57% have had at least one internship. Experience counts! Also worth noting, 70% of all interns are offered a position at the same company they interned for.
