Learn to find the right internship and successfully seek out employers.
An internship is a career-related learning experience for students looking to develop hands-on work experience in a certain occupational field. It enhances a student’s understanding of his or her career field while offering a direct learning experience. Most internships are temporary assignments that last approximately three to six months. An internship for academic credit is a partnership between students, East Stroudsburg University, and companies or organizations where short-term work/learning experiences are offered to. It is a way for students to connect the classroom learnings to the "world of work.”
Students across all majors are strongly encouraged to gain career experience in their field of interest prior to graduation.
The internship may or may not be for academic credit (this is strictly determined by each academic department – see your adviser). All paperwork and approvals must be completed prior to starting the internship. Some internships are paid, and some are not. Some are full-time positions for a semester, while others are part-time and take place concurrently with a student's class schedule. Internship experience can also be gained over a summer or a long semester break.
