Internships Linked to Job Opportunities - JustColleges' Career Schools Channel Helps You Get There

Jacksonville, FL (PressExposure) March 01, 2009 -- Today’s job market is competitive, with employers preferring to hire people who have experience. An internship can be a key component to securing full-time employment in a field you love. JustColleges has the information you need to get that experience, with many of its partner schools providing internships as a capstone to graduation.

According to a CareerBuilder.com survey, fifty-nine percent of employers said they are likely to hire their college interns as full-time, permanent employees. Those are great odds when you consider the likelihood of your resume being looked at twice by a company that has never seen you before.

Securing an internship can be tricky, particularly if your previous education is in a different field. That’s where JustColleges career schools channel comes in. JustColleges has partnered with accredited career schools across the country that provide practical, career-focused programs ending in internships, so you have real experience in nursing, massage therapy, or automotive technology to put on your resume before you even graduate.

For health-care programs like nursing and massage therapy, career colleges offer hands-on courses that focus on training you to work with real patients before sending you out into the world. For example, x-ray technician courses would be of no use without learning first-hand how to operate x-ray equipment and position patients. Massage therapy courses involve both learning anatomy and touching real people.

Whether you’re fresh out of high school or making a mid-career change, an internship can serve as a financial bridge between school and a career. Sixty-two percent of companies pay their interns at least ten dollars per hour. That’s no small change if you’re also receiving college credit for your time on the job.

At JustColleges’ career channel, you’ll find dozens of colleges dedicated to preparing you for the workforce, whether you aspire to a career in fashion design or culinary arts, computer programming or nursing.

American InterContinental University and the Art Institutes are just two of the career college systems partnering with JustColleges that offer internships as part of their degree programs. For an international career preparation experience, the Harrington College of Design in Chicago offers an exchange program with the Rotterdam College of Design in the Netherlands. And these are only three of the many possibilities for beefing up your resume that you’ll find at JustColleges.
