Whether you’re seeking your first job or trying to explore a career change, internships can be a valuable way to gain experience and make career decisions. Some internships may be unpaid, eligible for a small stipend, transportation reimbursements, etc. Others may pay an hourly rate. Career Services can help you determine the overall value of an internship and support you in your search.
