What is an internship? Where do I find one?

Internships are supervised short-term experiences in a career field that may be of interest to you. Internships allow you to enhance your skills and apply classroom knowledge to a professional environment. These opportunities are usually more substantial than part-time or summer jobs and focus on the learning that takes place as a result of your site work. Wooster has developed partnerships with many organizations nationally and internationally.
