Our goal is to offer all College of Humanities and Fine Arts students access to internships and the career skills they need to get a good job upon graduation.

Here to Career Checklist

  • Get your resume reviewed at WalkIn
  • Learn how to find internships (workshop)
  • Find, apply for, and then complete an internship
  • Attend employer information sessions
  • Learn how to interview (workshop)
