The Office of Internships & Co-Operative Programs at Florida Gulf Coast University launched in fall of 2015. We are seeking partnerships with like-minded business in the global market that have a goal of seeing young professionals take part in experiential learning to complement their academic pursuits. The Office of Internships and Co-Operative Programs wants to partner with employers who can offer students meaningful work with a learning component related to their field of study. While gaining work experience and earning money to support their education, students are encouraged to seek academic credit. In addition to earning a degree, gaining meaningful on-the-job training affords students a competitive edge when they attempt to seek full-time employment upon graduation. In return, employers are able to access a flexible, cost-effective workforce without a long-term commitment, and are able to assess students’ skills and fit with the company before making a permanent offer of employment. This can result in reduced turnover and greater overall employee satisfaction. This system benefits the students, the employers, the university, and the community as a whole.We invite you to connect with us and recruit interns and co-op students from our undergraduate student base.
