Edge Internship Program

Edge Promo Banner - Dec 2019

The Edge Internship Program gives rising juniors and rising seniors the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to produce tangible outcomes for real business needs in a paid summer internship. Participating students design learning goals, engage in ongoing reflection, correspond with faculty mentors, and build relationships with alumni. Bookended by professional development seminars, this high-impact experience equips participants with enhanced workplace readiness, expanded professional networks, and the tools to accelerate their careers.

The Edge Program strives to provide access for all CC students. Because internships can be cost prohibitive even when they are paid, the Edge Program offers financial support to help offset living expenses for qualifying students with financial need.
