Internships provide students with crucial real work experience, which is often required to fulfill numerous degrees before a student can launch a full-time career. These internships also give companies highly qualified, motivated students who meet the needs of the company. Before hiring an intern, a company must identify where and what type of work interns can complete in order to be an asset to the company.

The university has invested in a partnership with internships.com and the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce, which will provide JSU students and employers a way to review internship postings and resumes posted in a stored database.
