The Center and the Career Directors in each College/School partner with employers to offer internships that meet your unique needs. Whether you are looking for related experience to test a career interest or you want a structured, credit-bearing experience through Cooperative Education, you can book an appointment with your career advisor in Handshake to learn more.

  • Cooperative Education (Co-op): A credit-bearing, faculty and counselor supervised work experience which allows students to see the connection between their studies and the world of work.
  • Internship: A paid, short-term work experience providing the employer with skilled workers and giving students a taste of a potential career direction.
  • Micro-Internships with Parker Dewey: Short-term, paid, professional assignments which allow students to explore career paths and build networks. Micro-Internships can take place year-round and typically range from 10 to 40 hours of work.
