Finding an Internship

If you’re not quite sure where you want to intern or which career field you would like to gain exposure to, you can make an appointment with an advisor in the Greene Center to help you explore and clarify your interests, skills and value.

As you begin your internship search, be sure to:

  1. Respond to posted opportunities
  2. Research and contact potential employers directly
  3. Establish and use a network of professionals, friends, family, faculty, and alumni

If you have a general idea of your internship preferences, you can:

  • Learn about potential internships or research opportunities through networking
  • Create or update your resumecover letter, or other documents to begin applying for internships
