Internships not only allow the student with a work experience opportunity to assist with their resume building, but it also allows the student an opportunity to see what it is like first hand to work in an office environment. Plus, companies are interested in partnering with this internship because they get to see a student's strength and weakness prior to possibly hiring a student, should an opening become available. It is just another door that could open for a Morrisville State Office Technology graduate.
The program has achieved wonderful success in placing students in internship environments, with many students being offered full-time positions at the completion of their internship.
