Some of the many benefits you could experience through an academic internship at CSB\SJU include:

  • Gaining "hands-on" experience in a professional work environment
  • Developing and strengthening skills related to your field of study and personal and professional goals
  • Increasing your depth of knowledge in a major field of study through integration of classroom theory with workplace practice
  • Networking with professionals and exploring careers available within a specific field
  • Practice in resume-building, interviewing and seeking employment
  • Beginning the transition from life in an academic learning community to life as a member of a professional working community
