Advance Your Career With Real World Experience

Real world career-related experiences can be important for working adults who want to advance their career goals by gaining critical work experience, demonstrating knowledge and skills in work settings, and growing their professional networks:

  • Can’t get interviews in a new field: A student working in full-time in retail wants to work in human resources (HR) but can’t get interviews for HR positions because they do not have any HR experience. The student could benefit from an online HR internship that fits their schedule.
  • Making a career change to do good: A student who worked for 20 years as an analyst for a large bank would like to change careers and work for a nonprofit that helps children with autism. The student could gain necessary knowledge and experience through a service learning internship by volunteering at a local nonprofit.
  • Need experience to get promoted: A marketing student working in a medium-sized accounting firm as an administrative assistant in the marketing department and would like get promoted into a position in digital marketing but does not have a portfolio of marketing projects to demonstrate their knowledge and skill. The student could benefit from a = project-based or micro-internship that fits around their schedule.
  • Don’t have the connections to get the job you want: A sport management major cannot get their foot in the door to at a professional sports team because they seem to go to people who are connected with top people at the organization. The student needs to get an unpaid internship for a local professional sports team.
  • Want to break into a new field, but lack experience and funds: A student working in the restaurant industry loves computers and wants to get into cybersecurity, but has no experience and has to work full-time to make ends meet. The student could benefit from a paid co-op or apprenticeship that provides full-time, paid, work along with education and training in the field.
