Cooperative Education and Internships
Cooperative Education (Co-op) at LIU Post enables students to combine academic studies with solid work experience. The Co-op Internship Program provides you with the tools and opportunities you need to select a career, rather than settle for a job. Co-op partners with employers from different companies and organizations in a variety of industries to provide students with professional internship opportunities. This allows you to test out different careers and gain hands-on experience in an actual workplace. Internships and work experience on your résumé will catch future employers’ attention and make you more marketable. In fact, at LIU Post, your internship placements and the names of the organizations will appear on your transcript for prospective employers to see.
The Co-op Internship Program helps you gain valuable job experience in a field related to your major. Plus, it’s an important step to building a great résumé.

My first internship was at a small accounting firm, and my second is at a hedge fund in Manhattan. Applying what you learn in class to the real world makes your education so much more valuable. It has also taught me time management and organizational skills. Learning about career opportunities and meeting successful people who started off the same way as me is inspiring – it makes me really eager to start my career.
