Iona's I-O Internship course is very popular because it enables students to apply the knowledge and skills learned through their courses to engage in I-O best practices with actual clients at their internship sites. Internship training focuses on areas such as employee recruitment, employee selection, leadership assessment, training design and development, job analysis, performance appraisal, and organizational assessment. The I-O Internship experience offers students the opportunity to work in:
Geographically diverse areas in the NY metro region (both suburban and urban settings)
Organizations that serve clients that are ethnically and culturally diverse
A multitude of settings including large, mid-size, and small, for-profit and non-profit organizations.
Iona I-O graduate students have interned with various organizations including: Viacom, Madison Square Garden, Sirota Intelligence, Westchester County Government, City of Yonkers, American Civil Liberties Union, Michael Kors (corporate), Mercedes Benz (corporate), Fendi (corporate), Leake & Watts Community Services, and YAI Family Services.
