Welcome to the Center for Career & Professional Development Student Internship Program!
We are here to prepare students and provide opportunities so every student can have a successful internship experience. At Gonzaga, internships are used to transform classroom knowledge into real world experience; for a glimpse into the affects of internships, see this internship video.An internship allows you to:
- Acquire work experience that is relevant to your academic training
- Gain practical “hands on” work experience and skills
- Establish valuable relationships with potential employers
Internships come in all different shapes and sizes: they may be paid, or they may be unpaid; they may be part-time or full-time; for academic credit or not for credit. Although there are many combinations unique to your needs, there are three things internships all have in common: Reflection, Research and Readiness.
