Internships are a great way to add to your learning and get practical work experience prior to graduation. A successful internship experience can give you a big advantage in landing your first job.
Northwestern's Career Development Center works with students to set up internships with local, regional, and national companies and organizations. Our office is where you apply for approval of your internship experience.
Interns receive academic credit for their experience if they keep a daily journal of their activities, read outside assignments given by their supervisor, and write a reflective academic essay or report at the end of the experience.
