|The best way to show young people the variety of career opportunities is to host an internship. Check out the impact these experiences have on your future workforce.

Students will have a head start on their careers through your guidance and hands-on academic career exploration. Internships are 45 to 90 hours of on-site learning for students starting the summer before their junior year through the spring term of their senior year. In turn, employers have the opportunity to meet and understand their future workforce, and nurture the relationships necessary to fill critical positions with homegrown talent.
Your next step is to visit with one of our WLC I-Team members, please send us a quick inquiry about getting on board as a host. To find out more about being a host, please review the Internship Handbook.
