Internships & Career-Related Part-Time Jobs: Getting Started

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, identifying likely companies. It is a process that can take several months, and the Career Center can help you with each step of the process.

  1. Meet with the Academic Internship Advisor in the Center for Experiential Learning to determine if you would like to seek an academic credit-bearing internship and set up an action plan.
  2. Assess your  interests
  3. Assess your  requirements
  4. Set your  goals
  5. Create your resume and a basic cover letter
  6. Make an appointment with a career counselor or drop in during walk-in hours to have your resume and cover letters critiqued.

   Assess Your Interests

The first step in your  search is to assess your interests.

   Assess Your Internship Requirements

List any requirements you have for your internship.

   Set Your  Goals

Once you've assessed both your interests and requirements, it's time to set some concrete goals.
