Current Student Internship Information

What is an Internship?

An internship helps a student gain experience in a particular field or job function under the guidance of an employer. It can be paid or unpaid, credited or not for credit, and it can be completed during the academic year or during the summer.

Internships offer experience-based learning that enhance students' academic and career goals. These experiences serve to provide the opportunity to apply classroom theory to real world situations. Completing an internship is a great way to build a resume and explore career options. Internships can also help a student develop skills and make contacts / network in their field of interest.

Employers rate internship experience as a top factor in evaluating candidates for employment. This makes the experiential education process an essential part of preparing for life after college. Treat the internship process just like applying for a job - be sure to apply for several internships as you won't be offered each one. Deadlines vary by industry and most organizations recruit candidates at least one semester in advance.
