Internships: practice your passion
A main component of a semester with WCSC is a professional internship experience in your chosen field. WCSC faculty and staff consistently find internships that positively influence students’ vocational direction and could end in offers of full-time employment.

- WCSC faculty and staff will help you to find an internship in your major or area of interest. We especially look for internships in culturally diverse settings, with organizations who are making a positive contribution to the community. The placement process usually begins 3-4 months before the start of the term.
- We generally make the initial contact at an organization. We will work with you to schedule a phone or video interview with the organization. Ahead of the phone interview, look at these tips and prepare yourself for this important conversation.
- Some internships have their own application process, which may require an in person interview, an application, or a cover letter. Others do not have formal internship program and will not require anything beyond interviewing you. In either case, we ask you to prepare a resume tailored for the internships you are pursuing.
