  • Identify and/or narrow potential employers, agencies, and organizations to apply to
  • Prepare a resume and cover letter
  • Practice your interview skills through a mock interview

Students interested in pursuing an internship for credit should contact their academic advisor. Please logon to Bears Career Connection (BCC) to view current internship opportunities.
