Questions to Consider when Finding Your Internship

Think about these questions as you search for your internship: 
  • What is your major? 
  • What kind of internship are you looking for? 
  • Can you identify an internship that brings your skills and experiences in the classroom to life? 
  • What are your strengths, interests, and values as they relate to your career goals? 
  • How does an internship fit in with your career plan?  
  • Do you want to work during the summer or school year? 
  • What other obligations do you have outside of school? How will an internship fit in your schedule? 
  • Do you need a paid internship or is an unpaid position an option?
