Will I need to interview for an internship?

The employer will want to interview you before they make a final decision on whether to accept you as an intern within their organization. Internships are not guaranteed. You will also need a resume and, depending upon your major, a portfolio (if you need assistance with your resume or portfolio, visit an instructor at the Global Education Office). After carefully crafting your desired type of site, your instructor will begin the placement process. Your resume will be forwarded to one or more potential sites. Should any of the employers indicate an interest in interviewing you, the instructor will visit the site. After the site has been approved, you will call to set up a mutually agreeable time for an appointment (or interview) at the site. You should bring a copy of your resume and your portfolio (if applicable) to your appointment with the potential site supervisor.

“I really like working there[Kimball Union Academy] and daily feel that there is always something new. I am always working on the main projects for bits and pieces of the day with other faculty and staff. I also love the atmosphere which makes it really enjoyable to go to work every day.The people are great , the community is wonderful, and the surroundings are unbelievable.This internship highly relates to classes at Plymouth State University. The main classes so far that it has related to are all excel classes such as Business Statistics and Business Computer Applications. Other classes that are good and relate well would be all the finance, accounting and management classes. The main one should be Financial Accounting, Management Accounting and Financial Management.”
