Internships & Jobs

Reporting the Nation/NY is focused on the skills students need to get jobs. Students get internships and work in a variety of mediums. Over 90% of our students find jobs, many before they graduate. It is rare for a student not to be offered multiple internships. Students can take up to three internships, but are required to take at least one.
