How to Find an Internship

  1. Set your goals. Before you start looking for an internship, consider these issues:
    1. Time frame: When do you want to do your internship? During the school year? Over the summer?
    2. Location: Where do you want to do your internship? Do you have access to transportation or can you use the Regis shuttle service? Do you prefer to do your internship on campus?
    3. Pay: Internships can be paid or unpaid depending on the industry. If it’s unpaid, you may want to consider doing a part-time job while you are interning.
    4. Career field: Where have other students in your major completed their internships?
  2. Research the available opportunities. Students have found internships in the following places:
    1. CAREERlink
    2. Regis Center for Internships and Career Placement (College Hall room 209)
    3. Faculty and/or alumni connections
    4. Personal connection
    5. Online
  3. Apply for as many internship opportunities as you can.
    1. Complete your resume and cover letter.
    2. Follow up on every application: Call the organization one week after you apply to ask if they have received your application. Ask when they might make a decision and if it’s OK to keep in touch.
  4. Interview and accept the internship
    1. Be patient. Hiring decisions take time.
  5. Complete the Internship Agreement form and submit to the Center for Internships and Career Placement.
