Important Information

When deciding the best time to begin your career preparation, consider internship hiring timelines.

  • Generally, mid-sized and smaller companies, non-profits/government, and start-ups hire a semester before the internship starts. 
  • Larger brand companies including accounting, financial services, banking, hospitals, big tech, and media brands have earlier recruitment deadlines. They can start recruiting for opportunities 1 year – 18 months in advance. 

We recommend starting no later than the 2nd semester of your 1st year & completing the program by end of January, as the “Community Impact” internships will be posted in February! 

Students must complete all required modules and assessments, as indicated in the steps below, to receive the ASPIRE digital certification badge and to be eligible to participate in the Community Impact Pace Funded PAID Internship program. Each module offers you the flexibility to choose between synchronous or asynchronous materials.

When will I receive my badge?

Digital Certification Badges will be distributed at the end of each month, so look out for an email from Credly to accept your badge.
