HOW TO APPLY
 

If you are interested in participating in the Business Department Internship Program, you must apply to the program and complete the following application process. 

  1. You must be at junior or senior level status, have at least a 2.5 GPA and have successfully completed a majority of the business core and concentration requirements.

  2. Complete Student Application (Form 1).

  3. Complete the Career Development Center Workshop Verification (Form 2) after attendance at the three required Career Development Center Workshops: Resume Writing, Cover Letters, and Interviewing Techniques. After participation in these workshops, request the Career Development Center to critique your resume and cover letter. The workshops are mandatory and must be completed prior to admission into the program.

  4. During the semester prior to placement, submit to Professor Scalia, Program Coordinator, the following: Student Application (Form 1), Career Development Center Verification (Form 2), a copy of your Degree Works, and a copy of the CDC resume and cover letter critique and a revised copy of the resume and cover letter. Acceptance is a first-come first-serve basis. The first-round of applications will be reviewed starting February 1st for the Summer and Fall semesters and September 1st for the Spring semester.The second and third rounds will be the first of every month until the class is filled. The internship class fills quickly, so do not delay in applying to the program.

  5. If you are accepted into the Internship Program, you will receive formal notification.

  6. After you are accepted into the Internship Program, review the internship postings and select seven to ten companies that are of interest to you. Contact Professor Scalia to talk about your choices. You can also make your own contacts with other companies that are not listed on the Web site. But approval must be granted.

  7. It is your responsibility to contact the internship companies. Forward your resume and cover letter to these potential companies, schedule interviews, and complete the selection process. Since many of the best internships are filled first, it is strongly suggested that you plan well in advance to obtain all the necessary information needed for internship placement. The selection process must be completed the semester prior to placement. 

  8. After you have been offered an internship position, request the company supervisor to complete the Learning Agreement (Form 3) and forward it to Professor Scalia for approval.
