Test-drive a Career

Internships are temporary work positions designed to give students hands-on experience in careers. Internships may be full-time or part-time, paid or unpaid, for-credit or not. The typical length of an internship ranges from a few months to a year.

An internship gives you the opportunity to:

  • Test-drive a career field
  • Make professional contacts
  • Build marketable skills
  • Figure out likes and dislikes within specific industries
  • Strongly enhance your resume
  • Help you get your foot in the door of any professional career

Work your network

Once you have researched an industry of interest, it's time to find people in that field to connect with. Some colleges and departments at our University have special career and internship advisers to work with students in those majors. Check this list of career advisers to see if your department has someone. If so, get in touch! The internship adviser in your college will be aware of the latest opportunities in your field.

Once you're connected, try this approach:

  • Express a desire to find an internship
  • Ask about good resources, websites, and contacts for opportunities
  • Follow-up right away with a thank you note
