Employment, Internships, and Mentorships

Tuesday, March 05, 2024

UA-PTC Students

UA – Pulaski Tech Students and Alumni have multiple employment and development opportunities available to them. Federal Work Study students and employer-based interns are increasingly common in today’s economy and the graduates who participate in these opportunities greatly benefit from various employment experiences.

Students also benefit from the personalized feedback, industry insights, and career support of Mentors. Mentees develop better time management, self-reflection, goal-setting and achievement, and overall increased confidence.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE):

  • About 70% of employers offer full-time positions to their interns, and up to 80% of students accept the offers.
  • Students who have completed an internship are 15% less likely to be unemployed in their first few years out of college.
  • One in 10 internships occurs in the year following graduation.
  • Career changers and career returnees can also benefit from internship opportunities.

The Office of Career Services offers both paid and unpaid internships. There are occasions where internships are arranged within a program. If you would like to explore additional options for course credit, please reach out to your faculty advisor or program faculty and staff advisor. It is encouraged that you seek out an Internship ONLY if you have already begun or completed courses in your field of study and are in your second year of study. Internships are NOT recommended for First Year Students unless the academic program track is less than two-years in length.
