CCA students are highly encouraged to take advantage of valuable internship opportunities during their time with us.
Studies have shown students who complete an internship while in school have a significantly higher rate of employment success following graduation.
Several of our degree programs require an internship as part of the graduation requirement, but even when not required, the Career Development team hopes you will pursue this avenue of experiential learning. We are here to support you in the process.
Below you will find an impressive list of employers highlighting some of the industry partners where CCA students have acquired real-world training and developed strong professional relationships.
Contact the Career Development Office if you would like to inquire further about any employer listed here or elsewhere on the CCA website.
