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.
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.
