How do I get an internship?

Securing an internship is similar to the process in obtaining a job: you must find, apply and receive an offer. It is recommended that you contact the internship coordinator in your program to discuss possible opportunities and/or interests. Browse Handshake, the online job board as employers periodically post opportunities. Receive the department's bi-monthly newsletter for highlighted opportunities. Reach out to local organizations that are of interest and inquire about internship opportunities.
