  2. These positions lead to great jobs.

And nearly all Clarkson students (95%) get a job in the field of their choice within a few months of graduation.

Clarkson is a research institution. Research is the pursuit of answers. Internships, co-ops and research positions are — in themselves — research. They shed light on landing the job you want.

The Career Center has the resources to help you find an internship (semester or summer), co-op or research position that fits your interests and career goals.
