Let’s face it, experience is the new entry-level requirement. Without it, you will not be as competitive when starting your job search. With it, you will be able to show employers you are able to hit the ground running.
Indiana Tech’s Career Center cannot stress enough how important it is to get relevant, real-world work experience while you are pursuing your degree so you can show prospective employers you are ready to contribute from day one. That’s why we have a wealth of resources designed to connect you to relevant internships and other experiences that will give you a competitive advantage when it comes time to enter the workforce.
