Internships and Practicums
Many RRU programs offer work integrated learning opportunities as academic courses of the program. Work integrated learning is a mode of learning that allows students to gain applied experience while enrolled in an academic course. This experience provides learners the opportunity to apply classroom skills in the workplace and bring workplace skills back to the classroom.
The Career Learning and Development (CLD) office supports students whose programs have either an internship or practicum as an academic component of their program. Internship and practicum students are enrolled in a prerequisite course that is designed to prepare participants for their upcoming work integrated learning experience as well as provide the career management skills required to successfully navigate future career transitions.
The course provides information and activities related to everything from personal and professional strengths, job duty preferences and industry research to resume, cover letter and online presence development to networking, interviewing and negotiating skills.
