Internships

Internships are an essential part of the Meredith experience. Most of our students complete at least one, and many do more. Some students intern as part of a study abroad experience. And our strong reputation among employers locally and nationally means students have plenty of options when it comes to finding the right internship.

  • My time in Paris opened my eyes to different opportunities in the fashion industry. I realized that I could be in publications, for instance, and combine my business and fashion background.
  • As a way of working toward that dream, Jordan completed internships with local news stations and worked as the team reporter for NC State men’s basketball and football during her junior and senior years
  • A senior biology major with a chemistry minor, Laura Dugom, ’16, discovered at Meredith a desire to work in healthcare. But her two internships at Curamericas Global cemented her goal to become a doctor.

Increasingly, career-related experience is a job requirement, not simply an expectation. Our Office of Career Planning staff as well as our faculty have extensive connections with area employers. And because our students are known for their exceptional communication skills, work ethic, and academic preparation, employers increasingly come to us asking for more of our students – so much so that we often have more internships than we can fill.
