Through the Mount’s incredible Career Center, we work hard to prepare you for life after college through internships and career readiness events from freshman year through graduation and beyond.

The best part? They’re all FREE for you as a Mount student!
Where our students intern
Internships are an amazing way to get real life, hands-on experience in your field. They can last a whole semester, over the summer, or or even a few weeks through remote micro-internships. Some internships are paid, while others offer college credit in your major. We even have an Internship Fund to help qualifying students finance internship travel or other expenses. And don’t worry, you don’t have to find it on your own; that’s what your career counselor is here for!
Mount students participate in more than 400 internship experiences each year. Here’s some of the many places our students have interned:
- American Cancer Society
- Anderson Center for Autism
- Bethel Woods
- Habitat for Humanity
- Make-A-Wish Foundation
- Mayo Clinic
- New York Mets
- New York City Police Department

- The Today Show
- US House of Representatives

"If you are thinking about interning, DO IT! It was the greatest opportunity of my life. You will find so much more confidence about graduating and beginning your future career. Would I intern again? 100x yes!" -Aideen Ginty ’18
Internships That Evolved
Sometimes, internships even lead to job offers! For these three alumni (and many more), their internships lasted a lot longer than expected.
Where our alumni work
After Commencement, our graduates are ready to set the world on fire through careers that allow them to be leaders and make a difference.
Although it’s their education, skills, and leadership that stand out to employers, we like to think we have a little bit to do with their success too. After all, we’ve been training them for this since day one through career readiness training, networking events, and one-on-one consultations.
And we’re there for them even after graduation. Alumni searching for jobs can utilize our Knight Network database, which connects hiring employers and job candidates, and we often hold networking events for alumni to connect with one another post-graduation.
Here’s just some of the organizations where our incredible alumni are making a difference:
- ABC Walt Disney Television
- Dana Farber Cancer Institute
- Disney Streaming Services
- Ernst & Young
- Mayo Clinic
- Memorial Sloan Kettering
- Nature’s Bounty Co.
- NBC Universal Media
- New York Department of Education
- New York City Department of Probation
- New York Stock Exchange
- John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
- Vogue Magazine
We’re also so proud of our many graduates who go on to graduate school in law, science, education, and more at schools like Cornell University, Howard University School of Law, Fordham University, Georgetown University, and more.
And they’re recognized for their greatness too. We boast two NY State Teachers of the Year, DAISY Award recipients, multiple 40 under 40 honorees, and plenty of fellowships.
We might be a little biased, but we believe our students are pretty great (and we think you'll agree!). Whether you have a passion for helping those entering your field or need an intern or employee, here are some ways you can get involved with the Career Center.
