Internships

An internship is either a paid or non-paid, part-time or full-time job, in an area related to your studies. Some internships offer academic credit and others are non-credit.

Internships greatly enhance your learning experience and your marketability in the job market. Students who choose to do an internship have an advantage when seeking employment because they have a proven track record in the area they wish to be employed in. In addition, they gain feedback from experienced mentors who can also provide letters of recommendation.

If you are interested in finding out more about internships, please make an appointment in the Career Cente and register in the CCN database as a first step.

College Central Network

Capital students are encouraged to register in our online employment database, College Central Network (also known as CCN). To use the database you must have an e-mail address and should also have your resume and cover letter approved at the Career Center prior to uploading them to the site (Please call us at 906-5107 or stop by Room 209 so we can help you with this). Employers list new positions on CCN every day, as well as search the site themselves for potential candidates. Once you register in this database you will receive e-mail notices about jobs and related events. To register at College Central Network, go to CollegeCentralNetwork.com/capital
