Internships and Employment
“Being an intern at Hasbro taught me how professional environments work. Landmark College gave me the technical skills I needed, but actually understanding how businesses work will get me ahead.”
— Bobby Christopher ’18, Computer Science, Hasbro, Inc. Intern
Landmark College Works: Building a Foundation for Employment
Why just earn a paycheck when you can also be honing your communication skills, strengthening your time management abilities, and develop as a leader? Landmark College Works, our campus student employment program, puts the foundational building blocks in place for you to land an internship or your first professional job. With a focus on helping students see the connections between their work and academics, Landmark College Works offers new employee orientations, bi-annual performance evaluations, and other professional development opportunities. And just like we teach differently in the classroom, we also supervise student employees differently, focusing on your individual learning needs and helping you develop tools for future success.

The Employment Readiness Experience: Connecting Classroom and Career
With the “new to the workforce” student in mind, LC offers a short-term, intensive Employment Readiness Experience (ERE) that pairs an on-campus job experience with classroom work focusing on communication, professional skills, and career exploration. The Employment Readiness Experience is a building block to get students one step closer to landing an internship or job after Landmark College.
Four 2020 Summer ERE students are (from left to right) Martha Meigs, Sophia Spraggins, Maddie Tice, and Chloe Rogers.
We at Career Connections, as well as Professor Jeanette Landin, want to congratulate this Summer’s ERE students
Chloe Rogers, Katie Hoder, Maddie Tice, Martha Meigs, and Sophia Spraggins
on completing the ERE experience and we hope that their success inspires you to join their ranks.
Sophia (ERE 2020) was kind enough to share an exposé of her project and its positive impact on the Landmark College community.
Developing a Digital Citizenship Campaign
This summer, Sophia Spraggins worked with the Office of Student Affairs to engage in an Employment Readiness Experience (ERE) internship. After a great deal of discussion and cooperation, Sophia chose a subject that was important to her: Digital Citizenship. She first learned about the topic in her Digital Literacy class, taught by Alicia Beth. Sophia chose to focus on several aspects of the subject matter and these were included in the campaign she developed.
Because Sophia had an interest in communications, and a desire to inform her fellow students, she determined that utilizing the campus radio station was a great place to start. With the cooperation of Daniel Molster, WLMC’s station manager, Sophia was able to record five public service announcements (PSAs) for the purpose of broadcasting to the campus. These PSAs addressed five areas of importance that instructed students about safe behavior when using the internet. These areas, known as the 5 Ps, are: Profile, Permission, Privacy, Protection, and Positivity.
After several weeks of development, Sophia wrote a PSA for the five subjects. Each one of her PSAs were 30 seconds, as required by the radio station. Working with Daniel, she was able to record all PSAs and schedule them for airtime. The PSAs began running in July.
Once Part I of her project was complete, she then moved on to the next informational phase, Part II, which was developing a Code of Conduct for student internet users. This statement addressed how important it is for students to be ethical and responsible in their internet use. Sophia then recorded this information as another PSA.
Finally, she decided to use inter-campus television screens to get the message out. The Code of Conduct now scrolls on television screens in the Student Center, the Dining Hall, and the Click Center. Sophia’s radio PSAs will continue to provide important guidance for students’ use of the internet, today and tomorrow.

An internship at Landmark College is a career-related, credit-bearing experience that can provide mentorship, training, and exposure in a given field. We are committed to providing the resources required for students to access experiential learning opportunities and put into practice what they are learning in the classroom.
Students pursuing credit-bearing internships must follow the Academic Affairs Internship Policy. Proposals for credit-bearing internships must be submitted for approval by May 13 for fall and summer internships and December 2 for spring. Three credit internships taking place in summer session incur a $1,600 cost.
Limited campus housing is available for students who are interning locally during the summer, through our Summer Credit Program.
The first step for any student interested in pursuing an internship is to schedule an appointment with Career Connections. Staff in the Career Connections office are available to support students in identifying internship opportunities and with the resume, cover letter, and interview preparation they will need in order to apply and be competitive.
Similar to workplace expectations for professionalism, internships require students to have the independent work, self-advocacy, and time-management skills needed to be successful. Academic Advisors play an important role in helping students to determine readiness, identify how an internship might fit in with their academic plan, and adhere to the Internship Policy for credit.
