Cooperative Education & Internship Programs: The internship and co-op programs are designed to integrate academic learning with paid, planned and supervised work experience. The purpose of the programs is for students to gain relevant work experience while meeting the needs of the employer. Students may choose to work part- or full-time during the academic year or summer session. All Harris-Stowe students are required to complete an internship related to their academic majors during their senior year.
Job Postings: Full-time, part-time, professional and seasonal job postings are posted in our office for 30 days (unless otherwise requested). Position descriptions can be mailed, faxed or e-mailed. In addition, employer information and applications are kept on file for students’ information. Employers can request access to Hornet Connect our online recruiting system to post job and internship information. Such requests can be e-mailed to CareerEngagement@hssu.edu.
