A Win-Win Internship Program for Employers
The NHCC Xperience Project is an opportunity for academically strong students to provide valuable contributions to a local organization. Students who participate are nearing completion of, or have recently completed, their program of study at the Associate’s level. Often, they have been working in classes with real clients to adapt to audience needs, budget, and workflow. They are ready to engage on-site with the needs of new clients and new audiences. International students are eligible to participate and bring a global perspective to their work.
