Need Extra Credits? Resume Boosters? Volunteer work? A few ideas…

The semester is approaching quickly. Ready or not the CCI Student Center pulled together a few ideas to squeeze in extra credits, make your resume shine, and give back to the community.

Internships

CSI 490/INF 468/IST 468

The internship has two components. (1) work experience in position related to student’s interests in computing and information. Interns are expected to spend eight (8) hours per week during the semester at their internship location. (2) Academic seminar where students and faculty mentor meet together monthly to discuss their experiences and general career preparation topics. Assignments may include preparing a resume and cover letter, career development, assessing skills for and barriers to career development, and planning for graduate or professional school.

The catch? You have to find your own intership.
