GAIN REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCE AND BUILD CONNECTIONS

Who you know is just as important as what you know. Nova Southeastern University (NSU) will connect you to prospective employers. Give your résumé and portfolio the NSU Edge with internships and shadowing opportunities. Both are great avenues for networking with people who could be career connections in a few years.

Launch your career as a marketing professional, or learn what a marine biologist does on the job. Internships are temporary positions for a predetermined amount of time that let you gain significant experience and show off your potential to prospective employers. Job shadowing is following an employee during his or her day-to-day tasks to determine whether the job and/or industry is right for you. These experiences can cultivate your passion and interest or help you discover deal breakers before you invest too much in a career path.

There are tons of ways to find internships and job-shadowing opportunities:

Internships and job shadowing offer students a competitive advantage in a competitive world. Your dedicated Edge Adviser will guide your career planning and ensure you get the practical experience you need to build a strong portfolio.

Intern with Your Dream Employer

Make your summer vacations and free time during the semesters count. Score a coveted internship with top companies and organizations in your targeted industry. Gain valuable skills on the job and make connections. This is your chance to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real world.

Part time or full time, a few weeks or an entire semester, paid or unpaid—dedicating the time to become an intern will give you something to brag about during future job interviews. You can even earn academic credit or Experiential Education and Learning (ExEL) units for internships. Get the details from your Edge Adviser.

Get a Career Preview Through Job Shadowing

Match made in heaven or a recipe for disaster? Job shadowing is great if you’re still deciding on what industry to enter. You’ll get to follow a professional through his or her day-to-day tasks and observe what the job is really like.

It’s an opportunity to ask yourself whether you can:

  • See yourself in this role in the future
  • Perform the job itself
  • Work in that type of environment
