Students, we don’t need to convince you. Resume, portfolio, and network builder combined, internships are a critical piece of your career development. Whether you are actively seeking an internship for the next semester or are preparing for one next year, your first step is to contact your internship coordinator (listed below). She/he will tell you about departmental requirements, deadlines, and procedures for interning for credit.
In addition to working with your internship coordinator, you can login to ColumbiaWorks to search for available internships (for and not for credit), get help with your resume by visiting our Resume Guide, or visit the Portfolio Center for a one-on-one appointment to polish your portfolio and materials.
