Our highly-trained staff provides guidance and support in matching students’ interest or fields of study with their abilities and placing them in appropriate internships. CIP has an initiative for 100% student internship/job placement each enrollment year.

Each CIP location offers a variety of opportunities along with job support groups, helping students with learning differences maximize their work-related experience. Internships help build solid resumes, provide valuable experience and can lead to paid positions in the workforce.
