Applying for an internship? Our list of online resources and application guides can help! 

As always, when applying for a position online, do not give out personal information (beyond your basic contact information) and don't agree to anything that makes you uncomfortable. If offered an interview, make sure that it takes place at the business's office or at a public place (like Starbucks).  If you are worried about the authenticity of any job posting, stop, and get in touch with the Career Center so that they can help you validate it.

Intern Elora McCuddy

Elora McCuddy ('19) interned during summer 2016 at Warner Chappell Music in Los Angeles. 

"I worked to manage the song catalogue, note take, and create weekly event calendars for the staff. Through the various activities I completed, I grasped a better understanding of the professional work environment. With guidance, I learned more about computer and database usage, the importance of time management, communication skills, customer service, and organizational skills. I began this experience across the country in an unfamiliar area with minimal professional work experience and quickly transformed. I am now an individual who has experience in the working adult community and can handle the same responsibility as other, experienced professionals."
