An internship is a work experience offered by employers to potential employees to work for a limited time. Internships will vary in length but most are a full semester, or 15 weeks long, providing direct contact with an internship coordinator or industry professional. Students can intern for any for-profit or non-profit firm to gain work experience. Students should pursue opportunities that promote Communication specific skill development.
• Have applied and been accepted or provisionally accepted to the Sales Communication Specialization
• Have the internship experience pre-approved by Jennifer Rumler, Internship Coordinator, for the Sales Communication Specialization
