Internship Search Resources
It’s never too early to start planning for your internship. If you don’t know where to start, check out our Steps to Get an Internship [PDF] resource.
Whether you need to complete an internship as part of your major, or you want to do one to explore career options, students should consider which types of internships or industries they are interested in. It is worth noting that many competitive internship programs’ application cycles begin 6-9 months in advance of when the student begins their internship.
