On Thursday, February 3rd at 7 p.m., Gamma Phi Sigma and Chi Iota Pi will be hosting the HACU National Internship Program Informational (HNIP) at the University of Maryland - College Park. Since 1992 the HNIP has recruited college students for paid summer-and semester-long internships at federal agencies and private corporations throughout the country. These ten and fifteen-week internship programs give college students direct experience in a diverse array of careers in the federal and corporate sectors.
And talk about a wonderful opportunity waiting to happen. Most colleges make it mandatory for you to take internships and some don't. Students sometimes don't know of these opportunity or just don't have time to find internships. I was lucky enough to find internships through my school and actually made it part of my schedule; I treated it as if it was another class. Hopefully students in the Washington, DC area can take advantage of the HACU informational.
