Modern Era Interning: Gaining Virtual and In-Person Experience
When making the important choice of where I wanted to study, LIM was an easy pick—their curriculum focused on finding internships that would help me launch my dream career. In my past three years at LIM, I’ve completed two corporate internships. I am currently completing a third in-person at a showroom in Manhattan.Read Kaylee's Blog

Each student at LIM College is required to complete 13 credits of Experiential Career Education and Internship courses. Each stage of the program is comprised of a classroom component and an internship component. The classroom components are focused on developing job search skills, significant self-exploration, career development, develop an ePortfolio, enhance employability, and advance career goals. The internship component is comprised of real-world industry experience coupled with learning goals, coaching, weekly classes, reflection, and assignments designed to monitor progress and growth.
At this stage, students engage in activities focused on personal awareness and the identification of career objectives. Through seminars, guest speaker engagements, panels, internships, etc., students gain insight into specific career paths and articulate their own career objectives as they align with their academic plans. Students focus on developing the skills and abilities to leverage their strengths and address their challenges. These first three courses enable students to have meaningful internship experiences related to exploring their career goals.
The Internship Prep: Designing Your Career class is followed by two subsequent internship courses that allow students the opportunity to test out their intended careers through engaging in professional-level work.
At this stage, students have already had several career education opportunities through their internships and are ready to emulate a full-time work experience through their Senior Co-op. While students hone their workplace skills, they are also developing a better understanding of the daily demands of their chosen career path. Our employer partners often use co-op as a pipeline for full-time employment. All co-op courses have been designed with built-in flexibility to provide a meaningful experience for students with or without a co-op experience.
