At Post, students can take advantage of a robust co-op and internship program where they have opportunities to participate in real-life work situations related to their field of study before they graduate.

Why? Because that's what students need to compete and win in today's competitive job market.According to The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), 47% of employers prefer that candidates gain experience through an internship or cooperative education program prior to graduation, and a recent survey conducted by The College Placement Council revealed that 64% of respondents listed work/Co-Op experience as an important pre-screening criteria when selecting college graduates.

Our co-op and internship program gives Post students a real edge over their competition. Not only do our students get a chance to put their classroom learning to the test, but they get opportunities to meet prospective employers, network with people in their field, test-drive their intended career, and build their resumes with concrete examples of how they've made the connection between theory and practice.
