Employer Internship Information



We invite organizations and businesses to participate in our unique internships program and gain access to our top students.

 

Why are Liberal Arts students the perfect fit as interns?

Liberal Arts students are uniquely qualified to meet the needs of the profound economic, social and technological changes of the coming workforce, in that they are able to apply their humanity — to be creative, critical and collaborative. These special abilities set them apart from their peers and give them a competitive advantage.

“Our St. Thomas intern has already proven to be invaluable, producing work at a very high level of ability. Within a few weeks it was obvious that we need someone permanently to be doing the work he does.”
