Internships and Externships
Build your resume, your network, your confidence.
An internship is a structured and supervised professional experience for which a student receives academic credit. Internships are permitted to take place on-site or virtually. In the case of a virtual internship, the student intern gains experience while working in a remote professional setting, not a in a physical location. The Office of Career and Professional Development has information on a wide range of internship opportunities.
An externship is an opportunity to have your questions answered by someone with experience in a field you are considering as a possible career. In addition to helping you consider career choices, you will gain opportunities for networking and informational interviewing.
