Get Experience

Get Experience

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:

Internships

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.

Study Abroad

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.
