Internships

Get real-world experience for the job you want. 

  
Your education involves far more than what your learn the classroom.  It’s never too early to get real-world experience and a jump start on your career.  Consider replacing your current job with a paid full or part-time internship or engaging in some other type of real world experience.  Having practical experience in your field of study is one of the best ways to get the job you want after graduation.  Every student attending LCCC should take advantage of such a valuable opportunity to:

  • Gain career related personal and professional skills, knowledge and experience which is valued by employers
  • Get connected! A whopping 86 percent of employers seek to hire students with internships on their resume.  More than 71 percent of students are now completing internships to better compete in the job market.
  • Earn college credit. As an enrolled student in Work-Based Learning you can earn up to 3 credit hours for your internship experience.
  • And you get PAID! Internship students average $10 to $13 an hour.

Requirements for Internships

  • Enrolled in an approved program at LCCC or Partnerships
  • Completed at least 12 credit hours with a minimum 2.0 GPA
      

Ongoing Registration

Because internships do not always fit the college’s academic calendar, students can register for an experience throughout the semester.  There is no reason to wait and perhaps miss a great opportunity to work and learn for some of the best companies in Lorain County and beyond.
