The Career Intern Experience (CIE) enables seniors to experience a real-world employment opportunity within the greater Denver community. This opportunity allows seniors to explore career possibilities while broadening their understanding of the professional world.
Kent Denver seniors typically spend the final three weeks of the year working in the Career Intern Experience program as their final graduation requirement. Students arrange their own internships to work, without pay, alongside professionals for six hours each day, five days each week.
Students have faculty advisors who generally monitor the experience by visiting them on the job and reading their required journal entries and final paper. These faculty advisors also determine if the seniors have successfully completed the program.
