Employers look for candidates that already have relevant career experience. Participating in an internship is your chance to gain that competitive edge.
Internships can be known by a variety of names, including cooperative education (co-op), field experience, service learning, or practicum. Regardless of the name, they allow you to receive academic credit for working with businesses, community groups, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies.
If you are interested in an internship, first talk to your faculty advisor to discuss how internships fit with your curriculum and career goals. Then meet with an advisor in the Office of Career Services in the lower level of Seton Hall. They can help you identify and compete for internship opportunities.
