What Faculty Are Saying: Internships
“While supervising the Psychology Department’s internship course, I invited Career Services personnel to lecture about the interviewing process. The students were already in internships but many did not have knowledge about the process from the interviewer’s point of view. These lectures contributed to meet several goals of my course including: communication, personal development and career planning, and proved invaluable to my students.”
Emily Sotano, Ph.D.
“I think collaborating with Career Services to have the Washington Career Center recruiters come to my class was beneficial. My students learned about opportunities to do internships and earn course credit through this competitive national program. Many of them had never heard of the program before the presentation. I plan to continue working with Career Services to schedule presenters to come to my classes, where possible-l think it’s great for students!”
