DIVE Internship Program: Discovering Internships as Vocational Exploration

PBA’s DIVE internship program is coordinated by Career Development and will provide you with powerful opportunities. Through DIVE’s internships you will be able to explore career fields, develop skills, connect classroom knowledge to real-world settings, meet future employers and even earn a full-time position after you graduate. You will find these opportunities at some of the top organizations in the world, with names like Amazon, Google, and Bank of America.

DIVE Treks

Through our DIVE Trek Program, you will go to real-world professional settings and experience different career fields. These information trips will allow you to see how operations transpire in a broad range of professional industries, speak with employees and supervisors, and network with employers. Since its founding in 2015, DIVE Treks have become a powerful tool and taken students to places such as CEMEX, the Port of Palm Beach, and the FBI’s Miami headquarters.
