Internships are important to your academic success and professional development. They’re a great way to bring together what you’ve learned in the classroom and apply it in a professional setting. Internships can also help you decide if you like (or dislike) your major and/or future career path. They make you more competitive when seeking a full-time position, too.


Learn when your industry recruits and prepare accordingly. Be mindful of application deadlines, which may be several months before the internship starts.

Let your friends, family, professors, and other professional connections know you’re searching. They could be helpful!

Use your alumni connections, join 'CuseConnect and network with Syracuse University Alumni.



It's a good idea to visit Career Services so that you know what resources are available to help in your internship search and how to tap into them.

Applying for an internship is like applying for a job. You will need an up-to date resume, and in some cases, a cover letter.  We can help!
