Whether you are applying to graduate school or for a job, there is no substitute for real work experience on your resume. Nearly all majors at Columbia College require or recommend an internship or fieldwork.

While most students often research and coordinate their own internship opportunities, The Institute for Leadership and Professional Excellence and your academic advisor can help point you in the right direction for an amazing variety of internship ranging from local government agencies and private businesses to national entities.

Columbia College students are frequently placed in some of the most sought-after opportunities available.
