How To Find One

Landing an internship can be a very similar process to finding a full-time job. Many of the same strategies and activities will be the same as well. Below are a variety of methods and suggestions for landing an internship.

  • Develop a resume and cover letter, all tailored to each position you apply for.
  • Talk to the appropriate internship director, coordinator or faculty.
  • Check the internship postings on Titan Jobs.
  • Set up a job agent to receive email updates on your chosen search.
  • Attend job fairs and career workshops to network with prospective employers.
  • Become involved in the Career Services E-Mentoring Program to connect you with a professional in your chosen field.
  • Check with your major's department for possible internship leads or to check bulletin boards that may have postings. Improve your interviewing skills by attending mock interviews.
  • Be active in your search by following up on any possible leads or applications you may have sent out.
  • Alert family, friends, faculty and those in your network you are searching and include a copy of your resume and criteria for your search.
  • If there is a specific company or organization that you are interested in, check their website or give them a call about internship opportunities.
  • Utilize On-Campus Interviewing for internships that are posted in Titan Jobs.
  • Stay after class to talk to class speakers and guests about your interests in your field and their connections or opportunities.
