Student Internship Information
Internships: An Important Part of Your GC Experience
To be competitive in the job market, it is essential to complete one or more internships for experience and skill development. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ 2013 Student Survey, 63% of seniors had completed an internship. With over half of graduating seniors completing internships, the competition among entry-level job applicants may come down to which candidate has internship experience.

Intern Ready Program
Students who wish to pursue internships should participate in the Intern Ready Program. This program will prepare you for a successful internship search and will give you the tools you need for establishing yourself as a new professional in your field. Students who complete the program are included in our Intern Ready Resume Book for employers and are recognized at career fairs.
Check with your academic advisor to see if your major program uses the University Career Center for paperwork. Our process is electronic and is managed through your Career Connection account. For details, read about our paperwork process.
Graduate Students and Internships
Internships are available for graduate students as well. If your graduate program does not offer an experiential component and you're entering a field where you do not have practical work experience, completing an internship will make you more marketable to employers.
