student internships + employment Opportunities

Student internships and summer employment are excellent ways to begin career exploration and planning. Interns work in a professional setting under the guidance of a mentor. In an internship or a summer employment position, you are an employee of that agency and get paid for your work.

Below is a list of some of the internship opportunities in our area. Remember to apply early, as the best jobs go first.  Check this page often as new opportunities arise but note that most summer employment placement occurs early in the spring semester.
