This approach has earned the Department a reputation as a model training site for aspiring career services professionals.
     
    An internship at the Department of Career Development provides an educational opportunity for graduate students, as well as those with prior graduate-level education, to have a professional experience that will be helpful for a career in the area of career services and/or student affairs. The internship provides participants with an introduction to the type of work roles performed within a career services office and teaches the intern the skills necessary to be an effective professional in the field. Specific learning goals for interns include delivering educational workshops, critiquing resumes and cover letters, and providing individual career coaching to students.
     
    Orientation and Training: Interns are oriented to the Department of Career Development at the start of their internship and receive training throughout the internship. As part of orientation and training:

    • Interns participate in two weeks of structured training and one training session at the end of Fall Semester. This training is held by staff specifically to mentor interns;
    • Interns receive a minimum of one supervision meeting per week;
    • Interns may participate in Lunch and Learn Sessions once per month;
    • Interns may participate in monthly Career Counselor Consortium trainings, with topics ranging from “New and Aspiring Career Counselors,” “Employer Panels,” and other programs;
    • Interns conduct information interviews with Employer Relations professionals, Career Counselors, and Co-op Professionals; and
    • Interns regularly shadow Career Counselors in their work and observe Career Counseling Sessions.

    Mentorship: Ongoing mentorship is a critical part of the internship process. Interns will be matched with an experienced staff member who will serve as their mentor for the year. Interns meet with their intern mentor to review learning goals and development plans, to process career counseling sessions, and to guide interns in creating workshops and panels.
    Experiential Learning: After an appropriate initial training period, interns develop their skills through experiential learning, which includes:

    • Conducting brief walk-in sessions for resume, cover letter, personal statement and LinkedIn profile reviews at least twice per week;
    • Teaching workshops on resume, cover letter, internship search, and/or LinkedIn at least once or twice per week;
    • Teaching small group job search sessions for both U.S. and international students;
    • Providing feedback for personal statement reviews and other job search correspondence;
    • Assisting with marketing and staffing signature events such as Career Fairs, Networking Nights and Career Conversation Series;
    • Assisting with special projects such as researching and creating career education materials for the web site;
    • Conducting classroom presentation and orientations on SkillScan, and other topics;
    • Writing a blog post; and
    • Conducting evening workshops to residence halls and student groups.

    Career Counselor Assistant: With a mentor’s recommendation, the intern can move into a Career Counseling Assistant role. This will provide the intern with the opportunity to work individually with students to assist them with their job and internship search, choosing or changing majors, exploring careers, decision-making, goal setting, and career management issues.
     
    Time Commitment: A minimum commitment of twelve hours per week with at least two days between the hours of 1:30-3:30 p.m. and one evening per week until 7:00 pm is required.
     
    Compensation: This is an unpaid internship, for two semesters, but academic credit can be applied as part of a practicum experience.
     
    Application Process: We are currently taking Intern applications for both summer through the full year (May – the beginning of the following May) as well as the academic year (August – beginning of May).
