How Students Can Create Their Own Internship

If students don't find an existing program that fits their career goals or financial situation, they might consider working with an employer to create their own. The Career Center offers a variety of resources and services to assist them in developing an internship.

Do students' resumes cry out for relevant work experience? Are they ready to develop a professional network? Whether they're applying for a pre-existing internship or want to create their own, this workshop will address the key aspects of setting up their experiential learning opportunity. They can learn how to identify potential internship sites, receive academic credit and develop a detailed learning contract to effectively assist them in attaining the knowledge, skills and abilities that employers seek.

For more information on searching for internship opportunities or for advice on creating their own, students can contact the Career Services Center and make an appointment with a counselor.
