Finding an Internship
Search InternLink, AIP’s internship database for pre-approved opportunities.
- Focus your search by using filters and/or trying different keyword searches.
- Read internship descriptions closely, and follow instructions on required application documents and procedures.
You also have the option of securing an internship outside of AIP. Take advantage of available resources including:
- Career Services Center’s Port Triton
- The Research Experience and Applied Learning (REAL) Portal
- Opportunities shared by your faculty, department or college
- Your personal network
- Social media like LinkedIn, company websites, and other online resources.
- Upload your resume and cover letter(s) to InternLink and apply to internships via the system, or follow the posted instructions in the listing. Customize your cover letter for each position.
- Follow up with employers about a week after sending your applications if you haven’t gotten a response. Your AIP counselor can provide contact information for internships in InternLink.
- Interview with potential internship sites. Be prepared to talk about your interest in the opportunity, and your relevant skills and experience. Have your own questions ready, too!
- Send a thank you note to interviewers. Don't neglect this opportunity to make a positive impression!
- Accept an internship! If you are having difficulty securing an internship, contact your AIP counselor for help.
