What is an internship and why do one?
An internship is a supervised, real-world learning experience related to your major or career field. Internships allow you to:
- explore a career field and determine if it is a good fit for your skills and interests.
- form relationships with professionals who may help you connect to other companies, organizations or experiences.
- demonstrate work-related knowledge and skills which will increase your marketability for future internships and full-time positions.
Fusion Experiential Grants are available to fund extraordinary student projects, internships, and other transformational experiences. For deadlines, descriptions and application forms, check here.
Internship Registration Information
If there is a possibility that your internship will put you in course overload, you must submit a completed and signed Request for Permission to Enroll for an Overload form to the registrar by the first day of the semester.
According to NACE Job Outlook 2018 survey:
"Employers cited internship experience with the organization as the top factor influencing their decision when choosing between two otherwise equally qualified candidates, followed by whether the candidate has internship experience within the hiring organizations's industry."
