Host A Student Intern
Internships are typically a one-time educational work experience, of fixed duration, related to a student's major or career goals. Internships provide students the opportunity to build upon, apply and assess the concepts that are developed through the school's curriculum and to further their professional growth through meaningful, real-world experiences.
Colleges partner with the business community to offer students the opportunity try out their major in the workplace. A meaningful internship is one that provides the student with the practical application of their college studies.
What are the benefits for offering internships?
- Create a candidate pool for permanent employees
- Students provide new ideas and viewpoints
- Prepare and train the region's workforce
- Help employers meet the cyclical, project or short-term needs with long-term commitment
- Highly motivated employees who can put their educational knowledge to work
- Assist the college in strengthening and enhancing departmental curricula in order to produce qualified workers in the future
Come On Campus And Fill Your Vacancies
Students are always looking for jobs, both part-time and full-time, while they attend school, as well as professional positions once they graduate. This is why we would like to give you the opportunity to schedule an appointment with us to come to our campus and set up a table to recruit students. Recruiting is available at both the Middletown and Newburgh campuses and runs from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. We provide a 6 foot uncovered table and two chairs. It is suggested you bring company information, applications and vacancy descriptions with you. It is helpful if you bring a tabletop display as it draws the students' attention.
Two weeks advance notice is requested. If you let us know what positions you will be recruiting for, we will notify the corresponding departments and their students. To make arrangements for a table, please call our office at 845-341-4444 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Office of Career & Internship Services sponsors a Career Fair each spring.

Share Your Expertise With Our Students
Join the Career Advisory Network (C.A.N.) for Employers.
The Officer of Career & Internship Services invites you to join the Career Advisory Network and help shape the future of our students. Too often we meet up with students who are unsure of their career direction and are looking for advice from people in the field. That's where you come in! You have a wealth of knowledge and experience to impart. You can provide answers and direction to current students and other alumni so they can better understand their career choices. We believe that you are one of our most valuable assets and would like to bring that resource to our students.
You can become a member of C.A.N. and share your insights, experience and expertise in a number of ways:
- Conduct informational and practice interviews
- Critique resumes and cover letters
- Come to the college and speak to students
- Allow students to visit you at the job and see first hand what you do
- Provide internships and serve as a mentor
- Attend student/alumni networking events
In order to access the Career Advisory Network, you will need to enter the mentoring password "mentor".
