Steps in the Process
I want to find an Internship
Students should begin searching for internships at least one semester prior to the desired semester. Internship openings can be found on CareerLink, as well as other job boards such as Indianaintern.net, Internships.com, Indeed.com and Linkedin.com. Students can also find opportunities through identifying companies or organizations of interest and searching their career sites and social media for opportunities.

I want to see if my job or Internship Qualifies
Your current position or internship may qualify if it is a new position or recent promotion, you are working on a special project, or you have recently taken on new responsibilities.
Keep in mind that an internship must be related to your major and/or your future career plans. The position cannot be more than 30% clerical. Also, keep in mind that the number of credit hours earned is based on the number of work hours devoted per week to the new project/position/job duties.
