CAS Tip: Looking for an internship? Start early! Competition is tougher than ever.
Most internships for undergraduate students are not paid and many are offered for academic credit only. This means you enroll in an internship course where you pay tuition, are overseen by an instructor, complete projects and receive a grade and credit toward graduation. There is an agreement between the you (the student), your school and the company to make sure the activities the intern performs are professionally valid. You might ask, “Why should I work for someone for free?” The opportunities an intern receives, including professional experience, networking opportunities and possible job offers, are invaluable.
Paid internships are more readily available for new graduates. They often last six months or more and routinely result in employment at that company.
