Experiences outside the classroom will make you more attractive to employers who always want to hire the most qualified candidates. We offer a number of ways for you to get that experience:
An internship can help you see firsthand how academic theory is applied in the workplace while making connections and networking with industry professionals. As a bonus, 50% of all NYIT interns are offered full-time positions upon graduation
Volunteer Your Time
Serving as a volunteer is a great way to gain exposure in your desired industry and help communities in need. You’ll get a feel for the workplace environment and build professional relationships that may offer job prospects after graduation.
Spending a semester, summer or holiday break interning or studying abroad is a great way to learn about other cultures, and about yourself.
Alternative Spring Break
Join fellow NYIT students and faculty members as they provide assistance to in-need communities around the world as part of NYIT's Alternative Spring Break program. Recent programs have included trips to Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Peru.
Student Clubs & Professional Organizations
Join a campus group that shares your interests. As you collaborate with other NYIT students, you will develop valuable skills, including team-building, leadership, budgeting, event planning, time management, and interpersonal communication.
