Learn the benefits of internships and explore summer internship opportunities

Internships exist in a variety of forms: some are paid, some are not; some give college credit and some do not. The difference between an internship and other forms of employment is that all internships – no matter what kind – provide career-beginners with a temporary, “test-it-out” career-related experience.

Internship Week is designed to help you kick off your summer internship search! Learn more about the benefits of completing an internship, hear from professionals on how to make a lasting impression as an intern and connect with employers who are actively looking to fill their summer opportunities.
