Time is a rare commodity for collegiate scholar-athletes, leaving a problem in need of a solution. P.A.W. Journey doesn’t allow the scarcity of time to become an excuse not to develop the necessary career skills its students need to be successful in the workplace.
P.A.W. Journey’s 5th Quarter Micro-Internship program connects its scholar-athletes to industry-leading companies to learn and explore career interests. Through micro-internships, we collaboratively create intensive opportunities that offer our student leaders an arena to showcase their cross-industry intangibles while refining their skills in practical corporate settings.
Despite having to postpone due to COVID-19 in 2020, P.A.W. Journey partnered with 15 companies to provide a total of 40 internships. These internships spanned 2 countries and 12 states to offer career development opportunities of a lifetime for our students, while also providing opportunities to 6 of Clemson’s Olympic sports scholar-athletes. We thank our corporate partners and look forward to the future marketplace engagement of our students!
P.A.W. Journey has adapted from the traditional in-person internships to continued, virtual internships for May of 2021. As interviews for these internships are underway with our scholar-athletes, we want to sincerely thank our corporate partners for their innovation and commitment to the development of our students:
