The internship program for IS majors at the undergraduate level is designed for maximum flexibility.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a voluntary course intern experience that may be with or without compensation. The program affords students an opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in their chosen career.
There are a wide variety of placement possibilities. The Center for Career Development periodically lists internship options, which are posted by that office. Several other opportunities come directly to IS faculty and are announced before class. Still others are obtained by the students themselves through their network of contacts. The coordinator of internships works with each organization in order to provide a worthwhile internship experience.
As a result of interning in an organization, many students have been offered a full-time position after graduation. At times, students are asked to stay on a part-time paid arrangement while they continue their studies.
In order to facilitate students' entering of the workplace, they are expected to prepare resumes in conjunction with certain undergraduate courses (e.g., IS 310). This activity serves two functions in that it enables each student to structure his/her biographical data perhaps for the first time, while concurrently getting them to think about the internship program.
