EXPERIENCE IS THE ESSENCE OF LEARNING
Gain real-world experience with the JBI internship program, placing you in direct contact with psychology professionals and board-certified therapists. More than a resume filler, this is an opportunity to partake in work that will impress future employers and kickstart your career. This is a chance to learn about career possibilities that most people don’t even know exist.
WHERE WILL YOU GAIN EXPERIENCE?
Participate in a traditional internship. Volunteer. Get a job. Start a business. Develop your portfolio.
There are multiple ways you can advance during Internship Phase. You could end up working for a therapy based government organization, becoming an apprentice for a psychologist or contributing to a non-profit changing lives around the world.
The goal is to take what you have learned through the first two phases and immediately put them into practice to propel yourself forward.
The JBI program gives you the chance to put your knowledge to the test in the real world. Through a set of practicums and internships, you’ll gain invaluable experience that will set you apart from the rest.
This is a chance to hone your skills under the pressure and promise of the real world, and a way to prove yourself to future employers, business partners, and colleagues.
