Internships at Northern Vermont University-Johnson
Internships allow students to explore career opportunities, develop new skills, and establish a professional network. Many students report internships as a highlight of their academic experience. For more information on the NVU-Johnson internship experience, please contact your faculty advisor.
While some programs require internships, all students are strongly encouraged to do an internship. Internships are an important part of your education and allow you to apply classroom learning to the real world. Internships help develop important critical skills that employers are seeking; they strengthen your professional network. Internships are often the first step to finding employment after graduation.
According to the 2019 NVU-Johnson Graduate Survey:
- 45% of the students who interned (and completed the survey) are currently employed at the internship/practicum site
- 5% of the students received a job offer at their internship site to continue but declined
- 25% report being hired elsewhere because of internship experience
Clearly, internships matter! Seventy-five percent of our graduates who interned feel their internships were crucial in their job search success.
