Internships

Pace's Career Services Internship program is dedicated to enhancing the academic experience by providing students with the opportunity to apply classroom learning in a pre-professional work environment. Our mission is to assist in the educational development of Pace students by providing opportunities to develop as professionals through experiential learning, testing their skills and exploring careers. Students in all majors can explore careers by working part-time or during the summer in paid or non-paid internships. The settings, include national, multinational, regional and local companies, non-profits, government and healthcare.  

The Pace Career Services Program began in 1979 with 15 students, 7 employers, and an exciting mission: helping students gain study-related work experience prior to graduation. Pace's program has grown to be one of the largest programs among senior colleges and graduate schools in the New York metropolitan area. Each year, more than 900 Pace students work in internships with over 500 employers. Over 25,000 Pace students have benefited from Career Services since its inception more than 25 years ago.
