Career Programs - General Information


The career/occupational programs have been developed for those students who wish to complete a college program which will prepare them to enter the workforce in a position requiring more than a high school education but less than a four-year college degree. Some A.A.S. degrees will transfer to four-year universities.  It is important to work with an academic advisor for more information about these options.

External Internships or Clinical Experiences are required for many Career/Occupational Programs. External Internships are strongly recommended for students in the Career/Occupational Programs that do not explicitly require internship experiences. Internships and\ Clinical Experiences provide students with opportunities for career exploration, work experience in their program and the ability to gain marketable on-the-job skills in their chosen field. Kishwaukee College will assist with the initial connection and the contact information for local businesses, agencies, and industries to students to assist in planning and preparing for an internship or clinical experience. Career Services at Kishwaukee College offers additional support with resume development, interview preparation, and locating internship opportunities. Students interested in an internship should contact their academic advisor.
