Finding Opportunities Internship Program Search Strategies

Finding Internship/Job Opportunities:

Below you will see links to Handshake, GoinGlobal, and many other sites to aid you in your search!

Handshake logo

Handshake is an online database that CSB/SJU students can use to search for internships, volunteer opportunities, full-time and part-time jobs. Students can also discover opportunities on the go and respond to employers the moment they message you by downloading Handshake's iOS App for Students. If you're having trouble accessing your Handshake account, please contact [email protected].

GoinGlobal provides information about world-wide job and internship opportunities. International students can also use this tool to find a list of companies in the United States who've previously sponsored H-1B Visas (and who might also be likely to sponsor a job or internship).

Internship Program

The CSB/SJU academic (for credit) internship experience is a form of experiential education that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting.

  • Internships generally run 10-20 hours per week over a 16-week semester or 12 weeks over the summer
  • During the academic year, students typically participate in internships part time while taking classes
  • Full-time internships are possible, especially during the summer
  • Students seek local, national and international internships within organizations of all sizes, industries and types
  • Internships can be paid or not paid, for credit or no credit
  • Academic (for credit) internships are a three-way partnership between the educational instruction, the host organization, and the student interns

Caution:

  • Students should be aware of fraudulent internships and scams that can be posted to internship databases (which can sometimes include on-campus resources like Handshake).  Posting on this site does not indicate an endorsement of an employer by the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University.
  • The institutions do not assume responsibility for inaccurate or misleading information.
  • Note that you should NEVER pay money as part of an application or testing process. Beware of any position that asks you to provide bank account or credit card information, pay money to apply, or involves receiving and sending checks or money. These are possibly scams and should be reported to the site administrator.
