Learning Center Experience
"During my IT Internship with the My IT Consultant project, I gained more confidence in myself and my abilities. I learned how to better communicate my opinions and goals, as well as a little bit about the marketing process. I now understand what it takes to troubleshoot IT related problems and I am glad I could help the small business owner by doing the research for them."Jordan Nielsen, BSIT, Network Administration IT Internship, May 2014

Internships can take place locally, in your own community, or virtually, outside your region. It's a question of what best fits you and what is currently available. The internship program does identify opportunities and we also provide many resources to help you find an intern opportunity. We encourage you to review your options, conduct research, and consider what would be the ideal experience for you.
The internship director and internship coordinator will have a list of available internships. These lists vary from term to term. In some cases, we have developed partnerships with local businesses and they have local intern positions available on a rotating basis. We also have programs within the School, such as the Technology Center and KapConsulting/KapTechnology, which often have internship opportunities available. Please contact the internship director and internship coordinator for the current list of internships by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also keep a list of online resources to help identify possible internships. The online resources include both local and virtual positions. Spend some time reviewing your options and consider what position would be the best fit for you.
You can always conduct Internet searches through the many sources currently available online. There are also some very effective low-tech strategies!
Ask your friends and family for introductions. They might
know the perfect person or firm who would be interested in working with an
They have years of experience in the industry. Be polite and
develop a professional relationship with your professors. Ask them for referrals
and possible leads for companies who may have intern positions available.
Remember, Career Center specialists are trained
professionals! They may be aware of companies interested in hosting interns. They
can also help you prepare your resume and conduct mock interviews!
Whether they are local in your region or virtual, job fairs
are an excellent place to begin your search. Work on your resume and elevator
speech; print out business cards. Be ready to impress and make those professional
Have you taken advantage of all the professional
associations offered through the Office of Student Life? Have you researched
professional associations for your particular specialization? Research them now
while you still qualify for student registration fees. Many professional
associations have job boards on their sites that can lead to promising
Have you ever attended a Meetup group for professionals?
Look up Meetup.com and conduct a search for your region by zip code. It’s
entirely possible there will be Meetup groups for web designers, PHP
developers, software developers, and programmers. These groups are excellent
opportunities to network (for free!) with local people.
Nonprofits typically run on a shoestring budget with
talented employees and volunteers. They often need databases and websites to be
developed, as well as marketing campaigns and network expansions. They have
skilled employees on staff who may be excellent mentors or supervisors for an
internship. Contact nonprofits in your area and discuss their needs and your
interests. There could be a perfect match!
Last, don’t forget all the sites dedicated to internship
searches! You can start on popular sites such as CareerBuilder.com and move on to
Internships.com. There are many options available, just remember to use the
filters (time, location, etc.) to help narrow your search options.
The best place to start searching
for regional internships is the same place you would look for a job. All of the
popular job boards, such as CareerBuilder and Monster, have the option to
search for internships.
There are also search boards designed for virtual
internships. These vary by region and industry. These are a very good place to
begin reviewing what sort of companies tend to have more virtual placements and
whether that is an appropriate match for your degree plan and career path. For
instance, social media and web development are very popular opportunities for
virtual intern boards. But network administrators are not as likely to find a
match on these types of resources. Your career focus area will play a large
role in determining whether your internship is regional or virtual.
let us know what questions or concerns you may have. We can help you determine
eligibility to the program and what opportunities may be available.
