Applying for an Internship: Steps to Follow

  1. Your internship exploration should begin with a conversation with your academic advisor, and/or chairperson to learn:
    1. Whether you are eligible to register for an internship; 
    2. Your department’s requirements (e.g., establishing goals for your internship) and; 
    3. Any paperwork necessary for receiving credit.
  2. Career Services can provide you with access to many internships once you have met with a Career Advisor to discuss your resume and the interview process. A Career Advisor can familiarize you with a variety of resources including:
    1. Registering with Career Services, so you can explore our on-line internship (& jobs) database;
    2. Strategies useful in developing and researching internships on your own (i.e., networking, cold calling, informational interviewing and the online search)
    3. Business etiquette, interviewing tips and procedures, communicating with employers
  3. You should strongly consider practicing your interview skills by scheduling a mock interview with a Career Advisor; send us a couple of dates/times when you are available - careerservices@stu.edu).
