There are many ways to connect with our students for internships and job opportunities:
An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths. They also give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent. Click on the following for an overview of how internships work:

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal tax credit incentive that the Congress provides to private-sector businesses for hiring individuals from nine target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment.
Online Recruitment Service through College Central Network
Daemen College has linked with College Central Network to expand our services to employers and students. Once registered, you can add/delete or repost job or internship opportunities as they become available. Click on College Central to register. Once your organization's profile is completed a password will be emailed allowing you access to the site.
Please note: Employers/organizations may not post or recruit for job opportunities in any venue on campus (including career fairs, employer tables, information sessions, and on-campus interviews) that require students/alumni to pay a fee for training or placement, or rent or purchase any type of presentation or sales materials/supplies. Additionally, those offering employment/entrepreneurial opportunities with compensation packages requiring commission only or requiring prospective employees to purchase a franchise, or where compensation is based exclusively on commission or fees/percentages of sales from others under their sponsorship in the organization, are not permitted to access or utilize Career Services or College Central Network.
Setting up an information table is a highly visible recruitment activity for employers. Daemen Career Services offers this opportunity once a month when classes are in session. We will reserve a table for your organization in our Wick Student Center lobby. The following dates are available in 2017.
