The nature of the job market is competitive and most employers seek candidates with experience. In order for students to be best prepared for post-graduate employment, Career Services recommends that all students complete at least one internship experience.

Schedule an appointment with Career Services to have your resume, cover letter, and application materials reviewed by our office.  Learn how to locate internship opportunities and what employer expectations may be in a professional setting.  Start your internship search process at least one semester prior to when you anticipate completing the experience.  Keep in mind that many employers only recruit and hire for their summer internships during the previous fall semester - plan ahead to ensure that you do not miss out on great internship opportunities! 

Four-year degree programs with internship options:

At Penn State Greater Allegheny, several programs either require academic internships as part of the degree requirements or have an option to fulfill degree requirements with an internship.  Consult with your adviser first to make sure you are fulfilling your degree requirements, and then contact the faculty internship coordinator or contact person regarding the process for completion of an academic internship for your respective program.
