MARA 294 Choosing an Internship
Students can search the iSchool Internship Sites Database for currently available and upcoming internship opportunities. Internship listings provide information on desired qualifications, application procedures and deadlines. Students may search for internships based on task (archival, non-archival), work to be done (virtual, on site), pay status (paid, unpaid), location, and other factors.
Students may also identify a new internship that more directly relates to their professional interests and goals by contacting an internship site that is unlisted. Potential internship sites sometimes advertise opportunities on job sites or through listservs. These may or may not meet the requirements for an iSchool credit internship. Please make sure the internship site and the site supervisor are aware of and will comply with the requirements for a MARA 294 credit internship (see Internship Site Supervisor Handbook – Eligibility and Guidelines).
Some internships have a formal internal application process and deadlines. If so, it is the student’s responsibility to apply in a timely manner so that decisions may be made by the internship site in advance of registration dates for that semester.
