Finding an Internship

  • Consider doing an internship on campus (The Internships@State program works with campus departments on about 200 internships a year.)
  • Check out the Student Internship Toolkit
  • Use Handshake to search for internship positions and take advantage of on-campus interviewing and career fairs.
  • Look into the MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award to help you with unpaid internship expenses.
  • Meet with a Career Advisor or the Career Consultant for your college to discuss and create an internship search plan that fits your goals and interests.
