Chicago Summer Internships
Why do an internship, now? Today, more than ever, companies are unwilling to take hiring risks. In this economy, they’re looking for the sure thing – which is why top Chicago companies rely on internships as a recruiting and screening tool when looking for full-time hires.
If your resume is short on relevant work experience, cautious employers see you as just another untested, unproven college student. Will you have trouble even trying to get an interview? In competitive fields, that’s an unqualified yes. You can change how these leading companies perceive your value by completing an internship in your industry.
How it Works: The Chicago Internship Program puts hundreds of exclusive internships within your reach. And you get plenty of support to help you land the right one. You’ll partner with one of our industry experts to learn business tips, perfect your resume and refine your interviewing skills. And bear in mind the benefits of our 13-year relationships with top-tier employers. We’ll match you with a company from our list of long-time collaborators, the ones committed to providing you with hands-on, skill-developing, resume-building experience.
