Internships are a form of experiential learning, typically 1 semester (3-4 months or 10-12 weeks), that are related to your academic major or career goals. Internships are extremely valuable, and we encourage you to consider completing one.
An internship, or experiential experience, is required in some degree programs, but even if it is not required, you can still complete an internship as well as receive course credit for it. If you are unsure if your academic program requires it, please contact us.
Internships can also be called cooperative education, practicum, service learning, etc. Have additional questions, visit our FAQ.

While we make every effort to prevent fraudulent job postings, it is not immune to occasional scams. You may encounter fraudulent job opportunities when searching for jobs on the Internships website. You may also receive a fraudulent email that has been forged to make it appear as if it came from a reputable company. Use common sense, if it looks fraudulent, do not reply and report to our office (email@example.com) immediately.
Protect your personal information and avoid scams:
- Never provide any social security number, credit card or bank account numbers to prospective employers over the phone or electronically
- Refuse background/credit checks until you have met the employer in person
- Never wire funds - anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer
- Beware of fake cashier checks and money orders - banks will hold you responsible
