Get an InternshipWorking as an intern is one of the smartest things you can do to improve your chances of finding a job that makes you happy once you graduate. As an intern, you’ll discover:
- Whether you prefer working in a large organization or a small start-up
- What type of work you prefer—for instance, the solitary focus of programming versus coordinating the efforts of many team members as a project manager
- How your classroom experiences, from team projects to specific technical skills, translate to a real-world work environment
- How customers respond to real products and services
You can explore and apply for internships at our career fairs and other on-campus recruiting events. You can also complete an internship for credit or as part of your informatics capstone project. Talk to a Career Services advisor to investigate your internship options.
