(1) Internships – All Harrisburg University students – regardless of major – complete an internship of at least 135 hours in their field. This is real world experience that is highly valued by future employers. It can make a difference in whether YOU get the job or the other guy.

(2) Your projects – Every student completes two project that gives hands-on real world experience working in the field. When an employer asks if you can do the job, you’ll be able to say, “here’s the proof!”

(3) The Business Mentor Program is your opportunity to be paired with a successful local business person working in your field who will provide one-on-one mentoring and advice about your career plans and education.
