The Office of Career Planning serves as a clearinghouse for incoming internships. If students are interested in earning academic credit for their internship, they will need to work with the faculty coordinator in their academic major. Additionally, students can find information about internships:
Once students have located an internship, they should meet with their major’s faculty coordinator to learn how to obtain class credit if academic credit is desired. If students have already completed an internship and would like to gain academic credit through another learning experience, consider Cooperative Education.
Cooperative Education is designed to integrate academic study with paid career-related job experiences. The co-op program, coordinated through the Office of Career Planning, offers perks such as:
Stay connected and informed of positions (full-time, part-time, internships and co-ops), upcoming events, on campus recruiting, and employer directory information through CareerLink, OCP’s online jobs board, which is accessible to current students and alumnae.
A current and up to date profile on CareerLink further ensures that when opportunities that meet your interest, background, and skills are available, you can be notified through searches you create or targeted emails sent from our office. Current students and alumnae six months from graduation have an active account. If your account appears to be inactive, contact Mary Ellen Philen, (919) 760-8341.
Before you apply for a job or internship through CareerLink, you must have your resume reviewed and approved by a career counselor in OCP. Please plan to allow a few days for the resume review and editing process.
