Find Your Internship or Career-related part-time Job
Finding an internship is just as challenging as finding a full-time job. You need to go through the same steps: deciding what field you would like to pursue, researching it and identifying likely companies. The process may take several months, but don't give up. Career Development Center staff is here to help you with each step of the process.
For your first step, consider setting up an appointment with a career counselor to discuss strategies for finding your internship. If you are interested in an academic credit-bearing internship or learning more about getting credit for an internship, set up an appointment with the Academic Internship Advisor in the Center for Experiential Learning.
