Types of Internships

Internships for Academic Credit

Non-Academic Internships

Why Internships?

A Potential Job — “The percent of interns receiving full-time job offers as a result of their internships increased from 56.9 percent in 2001 to 69.6 percent in 2008.” (2008 National Association of Colleges and Employers Experiential Education Survey)

Career Success — “There is some indication that full-time recruits coming out of internship/co-op programs are ‘more successful’ as employees than those drawn from outside of the internship/co-op process. A greater percentage of these recruits remain employees of their original firms after five years than do non-intern/co-op recruits.” (2008 National Association of Colleges and Employers Experiential Education Survey)

Cover Letter & Resume – Students who do not have a resume will need to review the resume & cover letter and make an appointment with the Graves Center for Calling and Career.
