Find an Internship
Internships allow you to explore a career path and get exposure to a specific industry while building valuable skills. In the 2011 senior survey, 89% of Hopkins students reported being satisfied with their internship experience. Hopkins students’ internships vary in length and may last from six weeks and one year. Hopkins students have internships in a wide variety of industries. For full-time KSAS and WSE students, the Career Center is the central point of contact for Internship Agreement Forms. Students need to bring those documents to our office. We will then review the documents to determine what steps need to be taken to complete the forms.
Start Looking Now
In a recent survey, 58% of Hopkins students reported that they started looking for summer internships during the fall semester or in early January. Internships with the Federal Government (especially if they require security clearance), internships requiring outside funding and international inernships usually have deadlines during the Fall semester.
