All undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in the Internship Program prior to graduating. An internship helps the student enhance the student's professional skills with actual "hands-on" experience in the student's field of study. An internship is an excellent résumé builder, since most employers make hiring decisions based upon prior work related experience. It allows the student to stand out from the rest of the competition when searching for part-time or full-time opportunities.
Students are required to hold a GPA of 2.75 and to have completed at least half of their degree requirements at the time of application. The application process and required documents are accessed through Campus Web under the Career Services tab.
The Career Services Office is available to assist International Students for appropriate off-campus experiences including internships and career-related employment opportunities. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a Career Services staff member.
International Students new to GBC and currently enrolled students who want to learn more about the College's Curricular Practical Training program or to obtain a Curricular Practical Training packet can access the information and documents through Campus Web, the student portal, under the International Student link from the Career Services tab.
