 MCA Internships

Internships are more than a summer job with a paycheck. A college degree is just one element of preparing for a career. In this unstable economic climate, graduates should consider offering something beyond their education to prospective employers.


An internship is an employment situation in which a student works for a company to gain hands-on work experience. Internships offer indispensable work experience and the development of marketable skills, enabling a student to enhance their resume. Most importantly, they can help a student land a job after graduation!

Benefits of Becoming an Intern


Internships provide work experience opportunities to university students, recent graduates and people considering career changes. Employers are willing to hire interns with little or no experience, especially if the intern is willing to accept little or no monetary compensation. However, the benefits of doing an internship go far beyond your paycheck.


Develop work experience


An internship with MCA provides the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on work experience that students cannot receive in the classroom. MCA offers first time job seekers and career changers the opportunity to gain valuable training as interns and provide the experience they desire to land a position.


Develop an edge in the job market


Many employers are usually more concerned with a candidates work experience than their qualifications. Internships are a great way to get the work experience the candidate needs to secure a position. Often times, the internship is a critical part of the candidates resume. It is widely believed that employers prefer candidates who have completed an internship. In the more competitive job markets and during certain economic climates it is an opportunity to set candidates apart from others.


Transition into a full time Job


MCA see interns as prospective employees and often offers the intern a staff position to continue working with the company full time. Internships have been a tremendous way for MCA to find new staff with the desired skills and training. It is an opportunity for an intern to prove that he/she is a capable and hardworking employee. Understand that this isn't just a one-way street. It also gives the intern the opportunity to discover if MCA is the right fit.


Discover career possibilities An internship is a great way to discover if an intern is in the right career. Considering internships are typically short-term opportunities, the intern can use the position as a trial for a future career without a long-standing commitment. Apply an education MCA strives to assist candidates to utilize their education and apply that knowledge in a real-world setting. It is a great opportunity to prove the worth of a candidate's qualifications. Gain Confidence By interning with MCA, the intern will certainly build confidence. Once the internship is completed, the job seeker can confidently express their ability to perform above and beyond a related position and provide examples from past experience.
