How can I find internship?

Before you begin your search, consider the important criteria for an internship. Make an appointment on CareerGear with a SLC representative to talk about your search.

Aspects to consider:

  • Pay: Do you need to be paid for your internship? If not, do you need/can you earn credit for your internship?
  • Location: Where do you want to complete your internship? Do you need to live at home? Can you afford to get an apartment near your internship?
  • Timing: Some companies recruit as early as September for summer internships. Start looking and preparing early. Make an appointment on CareerGear with an SLC representative early in your college career to make sure you stay on track.
  • Structure: What type of internship are looking for? Do you want to gain many experiences in a rotational internship? Do you want to have the opportunity to work with a mentor or report to the CEO? Research companies to determine their internship structure and what is the best ‘fit’ for you.

There are many different ways to find an internship, including:

Make an appointment with someone in the SLC to work on and learn about resumes, cover letters, interview skills, professional dress, and everything else you need to get your dream internship.
