All students, including Coverdell Fellows, are required to have an internship over the summer between their first and second years of the program. Our career services office works individually with every student before they arrive to develop a Personalized Career Strategy (PCS) that is used to guide students and career coaches through the internship and job search process. While many students do try to get internships with the companies they are targeting for full-time employment, other students use the internship more strategically by gaining additional experience in a field before searching for a full-time opportunity in a new industry, exploring a startup opportunity to determine if it is the right fit, or giving back to the community by working for Governmental or Non-Governmental non-profit organizations. Some examples of recent internships taken by our students include opportunities at companies such as Accuweather, Amazon, Apple, CVS Health, Ecolab, Intel, Kimberly-Clark, Merck, Princess Cruise Lines, and VWR Corporation.
