An internship will help you get a job. According to a 2018 study, 94% of employers said they're more likely to hire a recent grad who had had an internship. In other words, it pays to get experience in your chosen field before you graduate.
Here's where you can start
To be approved for an internship, you must:
Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that you complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.

An academic internship is an approved and monitored work experience, related to an academic field of study. The difference between an internship and a short-term job or volunteer experience is the internship is structured to attain intentional learning goals. In addition to the on-site work experience, interns work under the sponsorship of a faculty member, who establishes and evaluates academic requirements for earning credit for the experience.
