What is an Internship?    Can any job be an internship? Can I receive College Credit? 

Internships are typically one-time work or service EXPERIENCE related to the student’s major or career goal. The internship plan generally involves students working in professional settings under the supervision of a practicing professional. Internships can be PAID or UNPAID, and the student may or may not receive academic credit for performing the internship. Once you find the internship lead that you are interested in, contact your advisor, or a professor in your area to see if the internship qualifies for academic credit.

Internships are essential for students and graduates with limited career experience! The likelihood of getting hired by that company after you graduate significantly increases if you have worked for them part time or similar company in an internship PRIOR to graduation. Your academic advisor may know of qualifying companies within your field of study that are offering student internships... and please review those highlighted below:
