Host Interns

Internships are high impact experiences for students that offer real benefits to employers. Incorporating meaningful and thoughtfully designed internship experiences will pay dividends in building a strong organization with a diverse workforce.

Hollins offers students the opportunity to engage in internships during the academic semesters, January Term, and summer. An internship is a supervised practical experience with an organization that provides students with the opportunity to explore, ask questions, and solve problems. It equips students with specific skills, introduces them to the workplace, and allows them to measure their abilities against professional demands.
