实习 for Students

For Parkside students, there are many ways to put learning into action, such as studying abroad, engaging in research, and working in your field of study as part of a class project in a community-based learning class or employment beyond the classroom. Perhaps one of the most powerful opportunities to gain professional experience is an internship.

WHAT IS AN INTERNSHIP?

An internship is a supervised discipline-related work experience that intergrates career-relevant learning activities into the university education. An internship should include an experiential learning strategy, an emphasis on professional development, performance assessment, and reflections.

Academic credit for internships
You can choose whether or not to pursue academic credit for your internship. Credit might be applied toward graduation, and in some cases, credit can be applied toward your major.

To earn academic credit, you must work with a faculty member in your major. Consult the academic catalog for information specific to your program.

Power of internships
According to a survey conducted by the National Association of 高校 and 雇主 (NACE), nearly all employers said they prefer to hire job candidates who have work experience. Relevant work experience is preferred by almost 75 percent of employers. 实习 are an opportunity for professional experience while earning your degree.

HOW DO I FIND INTERNSHIPS?

There are a variety of ways that students find internships. Before you do, connect with an advisor to assess what kind of internship is a good fit and how best to prepare for your search. You can also discuss with a faculty member and learn from peers about their experiences and how they connected with them. When you are ready to find an internship, contact the Internship Specialist.
