Careers & Internships
Internships are invaluable opportunities for you to add experience line-items to your resume, and can act as a structured opportunity for you to learn, grow, and develop skills and network contacts in your field. Internships can be local, national, international, or virtual. They can be paid or unpaid, full or part-time, for academic credit or not.
When considering what kind of internship experience to pursue and apply for, it is important to think of internships as the means to an end. Internships should be a win-win situation that sees both intern and host organization benefit; internships should be structured, supervised, and framed with learning goals and evaluation. It’s never too early to start thinking about internships, and planning well in advance will mean you have a good number of opportunities available to you.
