Internships

Internships provide Assumption College undergraduates opportunities to take theory from the classroom and apply it, gaining hands-on experience that will enhance your education.

Apply Skills Learned in the Classroom in a Professional Setting

Connecting students to internships in Worcester and throughout the world, the College's Career Development and Internship Center (CDIC) will help you land an exciting position.

Here in Worcester, the second-largest city in New England, we’re surrounded by dozens of organizations including financial services, health sciences, government, nonprofits, media, medical, public relations and more. Through your internship, you'll acquire the knowledge, confidence and professionalism that give you a leg up in today’s competitive job market, and also make important contacts that may open doors to future employment. Practical experience is one of the key factors in landing a great job or in differentiating your application for graduate school. Each year, more than 300 Assumption students enrich their studies and gain on-the-job experience through internships and practica.

Assumption's Career Development and Internship Center (CDIC) helps you build the skills and experience you need for a successful – and meaningful – career. Our CDIC advisors are available to assist you from day one through graduation in choosing the academic major and career options that are right for you and ensuring that you have the professional development and networking tools to make those aspirations a reality.

Paid and unpaid internships are secured through the CDIC's combination of one-on-one advising with extensive reference resources and the valuable connections that will favorably position you for that first internship, job or admission to graduate school. Summer internships or internships during the fall or spring semester are encouraged for all Assumption students. We’re proud of our proven success: 84% of Assumption’s 2018 graduates completed at least one experiential learning opportunity during their college career and 94% of the class of 2017 were employed, pursuing additional education, enlisted in the military or participating in post-graduate service opportunities six months after graduation.
