The CIS Department views the internship as a valuable stepping stone for students entering IT careers. For adult learners who are working full time, the internship often provides a bridge from their current position into an IT-related position within their organization. But, the CIS Department recognizes that the intenship does not provide a benefit to students currently employed in IT positions. For individuals who would have to leave a permanent job to complete the internship, the economic hardships this causes outweigh the benefits of the internship. When it is feasible for students to complete a paid or community service internship, we incourage them to do this.
