Ship has a well-established Business Internship Program that provides opportunities for on-the-job experience while gaining college credits. Students earn one full credit hour to every equivalent of a 40-hour workweek they finish. Students can receive a maximum of nine credits.
The SHIP Career Connection online job bank contains listings for both full- and part-time internship opportunities at some of PA's leading employers. Students can also arrange their own internship by attending job fairs, networking with friends and family in the business world, or applying to federal and state programs. Internships must be approved by both the department chair and the internship director.
These internship opportunities include family businesses, franchises, small businesses, and corporations where there is a need for entrepreneurial-minded individuals. Internships often turn into job offers, according to post-graduate surveys of Ship business students.
