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 a career center exploratory advisor  to help you explore and clarify your skills, values, and interests.

Once you start searching you want 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:
