Creating an Internship

Many students who participate in an internship have done so through their willingness to approach a potential site and offer themselves as a possible intern. Many organizations do not have formal internship programs, and others have simply not considered hiring an intern before. If you know the type of experience you are seeking and the type of organization in which you would like to get this experience, then simply approaching them may be a viable and fruitful option.

Additionally, many students have participated in internships through their existing contacts such as parents, siblings, former employers, coaches, doctors, and other various individuals they know. If you would like to propose an internship to a potential employer, make an appointment with the Assistant Director for Experiential Learning to begin making a plan!
