Graduation and a future career may seem like a long way off, but there are many things you can do to give yourself the best advantages for future success. One advantage is gaining experiences that will broaden your exposure to specific careers or general skills. These experiences, often called experiential learning, can range from volunteer work to an internship that is part of your Albion College education. These opportunities can help you discern your career path and give you relevant experience in your chosen field of study.
Whether you choose to do your internship for academic credit or not, the Office of Career Development can provide structure to your internship search process, teaching you strategies for obtaining a position. The office also maintains a list of internship opportunities and provides current internships. The staff will assist students in the internship search process by providing: an opportunity to network with alumni, resume and cover letter critiques, and mock interviews to help you prepare effectively for an internship interview.
