Finding an Internship
In addition to step-by-step help in our booklet "How and Why to get an Internship", below are lists of internships held by students like you!
Using the lists of internships
Check the employer websites to look for internships. Let us know if you need help finding the internship page, since they can sometimes be hard to locate (for example, sometimes you need to scroll to the very bottom of their homepage to find the “careers” link).
How to contact an employer
- If there is an internship available, then apply!
- If there is not an internship available or nothing is listed, contact the employer directly to ask about both current and future opportunities. For further help, see below.
- Find “Contact” or “Contact Us” on the organization’s website; there should be a phone number. Often, you need to scroll to the very bottom of their homepage.
- Call the number and when a person answers, tell them that you’re calling about an internship (name it), and ask who you should talk with about that internship.
- Call that person. Tell them that you have been told that previous Capital students have had this internship, tell them you looked on the website and couldn’t find it, and ask if they can provide you with more information.
