 What is an internship?

An internship is any carefully monitored work or service experience in which students have intentional learning goals and reflect actively on what they are learning throughout the experience.

Why internships?  

For students, internships help you put your education to use in a professional setting. They allow students to apply the concepts and theories they learn while engaging with industry professionals.  Many students look at internships as a way to confirm their interest in a given field or discipline.

For employers, internships can be a great way to benefit from a fresh, academic perspective while engaging with emerging leaders of tomorrow. Internships are also a way for you to give back by providing meaningful opportunities for professional development to students who are interested in your field.


Intern Connections Program

For students, the Intern Connections Program offers students the opportunity to integrate academic studies with professional work experience in an internship or experiential setting.

For employers, a partnership with the Intern Connections Program is a platform to develop or expand your internship program and recruit dynamic Parkside talent to fill your internship positions. Reach us for more information.


Steps to Finding an Internship

Step 1: Ask yourself:

  • What kind of work do you want to do once you graduate?
  • Is it very important to you for your internship to be geographically close to school if you’re taking classes at the same time, or can you commute?
  • Would you be willing to move to another city for a summer or a semester?
  • How much money do you need to make, or can you go without a paycheck for a while?
  • Do you want course credit for your internship?

Step 2: Research

  • Are there any specific companies that are of interest to you?
  • Do your family and friends know about any opportunities for you?
  • What types of internship openings that are available in your field?

Step 3: Apply

If you do not have a resume, start working on one. Tailor your resume to reflect the type of internship you desire. The Advising and Career Center will be more than happy to assist you.
