Start your career before you graduate with an internship!

An internship allows you to gain valuable work experience, which enables you to build your professional resume, in order to be competitive in the job market. The Undergraduate Internship program is managed by The Center for Career & Professional Development. An internship experience can validate your career choice and open your eyes and ears to new possibilities. It may also encourage you to rethink your choices and make new decisions. Whatever the outcome, the experience is a way for you to assess your strengths and weaknesses prior to graduation.

• Earn Academic Credits



Internship experiences may be completed for academic credit (by enrolling in one of the many courses which require an internship at John Jay), for pay (about 25% of the internships we post on John Jay Careers Online are paid), or more commonly as a pre-professional unpaid work experience.  If you think you are ready to complete an internship, make an appointment to speak with any of our career counselors who can help you think about your options and create a plan.
