Other University Resources: Many academic departments post internship opportunities for their majors. Some have designated a faculty member as the “Internship Coordinator.” If you have declared a major, you may want to investigate possible departmental postings as well as Career Center postings.
HOW DO INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS WORK?
Interns usually spend a minimum of 12 hours per week at the internship site. Internships usually follow semester cycles and occasionally can be longer or shorter depending upon the mutual arrangement between the student and the organization.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN THE QUEENS COLLEGE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM?
If interested in an internship sign up to attend the Intro to Internships Workshop. This workshop offers an overview of the program and ensures that you have all the necessary information to get the most out of the program. Once completed, and after submission of an approved resume, you will have the opportunity to indicate your employer selections from a database of internships and have your resume forwarded to employers and organizations as appropriate.
Internship seminars are held every semester for students with current placements. Because these seminars are designed to provide you with the information and resources that will help make your placement a successful one, they are required as part of the internship experience.
