Career Prep

Connecting Students and Employers

The Voiland College Internships and Career Services office inspires students to become leaders in today’s complex global society through participation in experiential learning and professional practice activities with engaged industry partners. The office provides career-planning services to assist students in clarifying career goals through individual coaching and activities that guide students through the career development process.

Internships and Career Services coordinates the college’s Professional Practice and Experiential Learning (ProPEL) program and on-campus recruiting, including interviews, networking events, technical career fairs, information sessions, and job postings.

Professional Practice and Experiential Learning (ProPEL)

The ProPEL program links qualified, interested students with employers to fill engineering positions. These up-and-coming professionals can save the employer time, provide support on special projects, and invigorate the work place. In return, student interns benefit from industry knowledge and experience while exploring their chosen career path and earning academic credit. We look forward to helping students and employers connect. Visit the Internships and Career Services website for more information.
