Find an Internship

Internships at Keene State vary depending on your department: some are part of course work, others are independent. Internships can be for-credit, not-for-credit, paid, or unpaid.

Why should I get an internship?

Prepare for the Internship

For most internships, the application process is very similar to applying for a job. For departments that assign internships as part of a course, meet with the faculty instructor for that course.

Already have an internship? Don’t forget to report it on JobWISE.
Instructions to report or register your internship through JobWISE

  • Prepare and revise your resume and cover letter.
  • Prepare for the interview.
  • If you choose to do a career-building internship that doesn’t involve credits, you will coordinate directly with the employer to set up the internship. Faculty approval is only required for credit-bearing internships.
  • Remember that summer internship course tuition is charged per credit through KSC Continuing Education.
  • Contact Academic and Career Advising if you have questions.

Get credit for your internship

Academic internships (for credit) require prior faculty approval and must be reported through JobWISE, but first…

  • Make sure the internship site and supervisor are willing to work with KSC on granting credit for the internship – they will need to sign an Affiliation Agreement. Academic and Career Advising will work with the site on this agreement.
  • If you do not already have a faculty member sponsoring your internship, find out from your department or an ACA Career Advisor if there is someone in your major who works with internships.
  • Work with your faculty sponsor to determine how many hours and credits you can reasonably fit into your schedule. Internships are a minimum of 35 hours per credit but vary by department.
  • Discuss internship objectives and evaluation plans.
  • Request a job description from your supervisor or from the JobWISE posting. It should include at least your start and end date, your site supervisor’s name and contact information.
