An internship experience may be paid or unpaid. Students may contact employers directly concerning the possibility of an internship or they may work with the Faculty Supervisor of the designated program to secure a work site. 

Benefits of an Internship 

Employers are looking for graduates who already have experience in their fields. An internship will give you a competitive edge in your job search. 

Internships are a win-win situation in which both students and employers’ benefit. Internship students are able to explore career options and test their classroom skills in real-life learning situations. Employers build a pool of tested and proven job candidates for current or future openings. 

For Students 

Employers expect professional behavior from the internship student. As professionals, students must treat their employers respectfully by giving appropriate notification of absences or termination. 

Finding a Position 

Once the Faculty Supervisor of the designated program has approved you, the Faculty Supervisor will attempt to place you with an employer that matches your needs. Many students search for their own internships directly. Do not agree to be interviewed for an internship until you have made sure that you have met the requirements and met with your Faculty Supervisor assigned to you if you wish to receive college credit for this experience.
