What are the benefits of an internship?
An internship is an invaluable experience for any college student. Learning more about your desired career field or industry can help you decide if you’re on the correct path with your degree and major. Not only will you get a foot in the door at a potential post-graduation employer, you’ll become a valued member of a team. You’ll bring fresh ideas and new strengths and skills to the workplace.
Will I get paid?
We do encourage businesses to pay interns when possible. Even if your internship is unpaid, however, you will reap many other rewards from your hard work.
How many hours a week will I work?
You may negotiate hours with the business at which you intern. We recommend working between 10-20 hours a week, depending on your class schedule and other obligations. It’s important that you do not overcommit yourself.
How do I find a business at which to intern?
