Jumpstart your career with an internship

Internships give you an opportunity to supplement your education by working off-campus within a creative field during school. Most internships are a lot like apprenticeships, in the sense that you’ll learn from an expert while doing supervised work. This can help you test a potential career path and gain résumé-building experience at the same time.

The Office of Career Design is here to help you get started with tactics and strategy for locating your internship. Some are listed through Handshake, but many students arrange their own opportunities with outside organizations and businesses.

Sophomores, juniors, and seniors in good academic standing are automatically eligible for internships. You can earn up to 6 internship credit. The most common internship is 3 credits (like a regular class) and 135 hours of work.

My internship helped me level up my web development skills in a real-world environment.
