Post full time, part time, internship, and summer positions through Handshake. You can register your business, post and edit positions, and connect with students through Career Connections, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Connections is a premier, career development program that supports experiential learning and personal growth, while delivering hands-on experience to our students. This unique program provides students in their junior and senior years the opportunity to apply for funding for an internship, research project, volunteer opportunity, or study away program. We believe that these experiential programs will differentiate students from their peers when they start their careers or apply to graduate school.
You are welcome to visit our students on our Sebago Lake campus to conduct a class presentation or information session, staff a table in a high traffic area to introduce students to your business and opportunities, or collect resumes and conduct interviews with multiple candidates. You can meet with candidates from a wide variety of academic majors and programs to find the right fit. Contact us to talk about the options that will work best for you.
Interns are not required to receive course credit for an internship, but internships may be set up for the student to receive course credit. Internships for 4 credits require that a student work 160 hours in a semester, do academic work including keeping a weekly journal and writing papers, and a supervisor must be willing to evaluate and recommend a grade at the conclusion of the experience. Contact us to talk about options that will work best for you.
