Manhattanville's Center for Career Development (CCD) helps connect students to workplace learning experiences. Students can test drive their career and get a first-hand look at the work environment while acquiring the necessary skills and abilities to compete in the ever-changing global marketplace. Through the Valiant Internship Programs (VIP) students can register an internship for credit, complete professional development, and earn a stipend through a social justice internship fund. VIPs spend time reflecting on their experiences with relevant faculty and staff, network with their employers and peers, and learn to leverage their opportunities for future success.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) statistically verified that companies look to hire entry-level positions from their internship pool of students. To remain competitive in today's workforce, the Center for Career Development encourages students to complete 2-3 internships during their undergraduate years.
