The Center for Civics Education is building a database of internships available in local, state and federal government offices and agencies, public policy organizations, non-profit organizations and think tanks.
Internships provide many benefits for college students, including job experience, building a resume, creating and expanding a professional network, securing references, and helping to guide students as you make career decisions. They also offer opportunities to be mentored by professionals in your desired field of study and work and give you an advantage transitioning from college to professional life.
Intern opportunities vary considerably in terms of qualifications for internship candidates, tasks and responsibilities assigned to interns, length of internship service, and whether or not the internship position is compensated.
The Center does not provide counseling or placement services for internships but encourages students to contact organizations and agencies on their own or contact Concordia's Center for Career and Vocation for general internship assistance.
