Internships

Quick Tips

An internship is an excellent way to apply your coursework to the world of work. Internships are a form of experiential learning in which you learn about a career that interests you through direct experience with an organization. Internships are more meaningful than part-time or summer jobs.  There is a focus on a project and an opportunity to reflect on the learning that takes place through your internship experience.  Types of internships vary widely; internships can be done throughout the year, can be paid or unpaid, and are available locally, nationally, and internationally

Do informational interviews as much as possible! They help teach you about careers you might be interested in before you have to work or intern there. Also they are great practice for talking with professionals, even if it is just a casual meet up.

Come meet with career advisors early and often, but don't expect them to do all the work for you. Our career staff will help you with anything you could possibly think of but they will also expect you to put in work on your own to make your success happen.
