Internship Placement for STEM Students

Today, most careers begin with an intern position within an organization. In fact, many organizations get the majority of their entry-level hires directly from the interns who worked in their workplace. Addition- ally, organizations are increasingly identifying students for internship positions as early as the freshman year. CCG Internship Placement Service is designed to help you balance the rigors of your academic training with the reality of the early start required to land the ideal position when you graduate.

 

Job Readiness Certification

 


The CCG Job Readiness Certification is a soft skills training and certification program we offer to our internship and entry level candidates.

The CCG Job Readiness Certification is designed to ensure that interns provided by CCG bring exceptional teamwork, communication, problem solving, critical thinking, negotiation, office etiquette, and relationship management skills to your organization. Our certification allows emerging professionals to demonstrate their career readiness and allows employers to minimize on-the-job training.

Certification involves 20 hours of learning and offers 2 CEU credits. Certification courses may be taken at our two annual conferences.
