Get real-world work experience

Internships give you hands-on experience in professional work settings. 

An internship can serve as a trial-run for your chosen field. This experience allows you to explore your future career in more depth, gain professional skills outside of the academic setting, and network with others in the profession.

Find an internship

We connect  students with more than 300,000 national employers who are seeking both employees and interns. Career Services can help you prepare for your internship by assisting with your search. We can provide guidance as you develop a professional resume and individual cover letters for each position. We can also schedule opportunities for you to practice your interview skills.

Internships can be in traditional work settings, or they can come from volunteer opportunities that lead to internships. They can also be virtual positions that allow you to conduct work remotely.

Prior to your internship, you'll develop learning objectives that outline how it meets your academic, career and personal goals.
