Discovering Internships as Vocational Exploration
Career Development assists PBA’s internship programs and will provide you with powerful opportunities. Through 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.
Through our Career 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. Career Treks have become a powerful tool and have taken students to places such as CEMEX, the Port of Palm Beach, and the FBI’s Miami headquarters.
We offer resume and cover letter reviewing as well as practice interviews through our Career Peer program. Our Career Peers are students trained in resume, CV, and cover letter writing as well as interview preparations and LinkedIn reviews. Visit the office for a walk-in with a Career Peer or schedule an appointment with us on Handshake.
