Internships at Rollins

What is an internship?

An internship is a major and/or career-related work experience with a company or organization usually lasting one (1) semester. Internships are different from regular part-time jobs in that an internship must offer, as a primary focus, meaningful exposure to a professional, college-level career field. Students from of all class years (First-year, Sophomore, Junior, Senior) can participate in internship experiences. An internship can be paid or unpaid, for academic credit or not-for-credit. Internships are typically part-time during the academic year (approx. 12-15 hrs/week) and can be part-time or full-time during the summer.

 

Why should I do an internship?

Career Services recommends that students participate in at least two (2) internships, one (1) before the end of their junior year, while they are at Rollins, so they can

  • Explore career fields and find out what you like and don't like to do

  • Connect classroom learning to practical applications

  • Gain relevant real-world experience to enhance your resume

  • Develop networking skills and gain professional contacts in your career field of interest

  • Be more competitive in your full-time job search and/or graduate school applications
