Completing an internship as an undergraduate is vital to jump starting your career.
Interning not only provides you with valuable hands-on professional skills, but also
gives your resume an edge and can even lead to full-time employment and other opportunities.

Tips for Finding an Internship
- Start early. Be proactive! It's never too soon to look. At the least, you will get
an idea of where and how you can be an intern. At the best, you might find a company
willing to hire you whenever you're ready! Don't bank on one position you find, apply
to multiple positions.
- Use all available resources. In addition to the career services and events offered
by TU and CBE (listed below), use job websites and LinkedIn to search for opportunities.
Tap into your existing networks through family, friends, clubs, places of worship,
etc. Let them know you're looking for opportunities.
- Prepare your professional image. Employers want to see a polished resume, even if
it just lists your part-time job or campus involvement. Practice interview and networking
skills through the Career Center. Acquire professional-looking attire for interviews.
- Network. Network. Network. Use every opportunity you have to meet and talk to business
professionals. You never know where a casual acquaintance might lead.
- Keep in mind the internship requirements when seeking a position for the Professional Experience course.
