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 would recommend to anyone doing an internship to try to do it during the school year [rather than as a last class to graduate] when you have less stress worrying about what to do with the rest of your life.”
