You are here


Students should view internships as an expected collegiate experience. More and more, organizations are expecting graduates to bring experience to the table. In order to compete at the highest level, the internship provides an opportunity for the student to gain technical experience, as well as, explore career options available. Some departments at DSU require internships through student teaching, clinical experiences, practicums, etc. Some departments include nursing, education, movement science, social work and mass communications. However, all students should seek internship experience.

The Office of Career Services connects students to employers for internships in various ways. Our online Hire-a-Hornet system allows students to post resumes and apply for openings. The Office also emails a periodic internship list and job blasts to students to DSU email accounts. Networking events such as information sessions, lunch-and-learns, career fairs, road trips, classroom presentations and other events allow students to market themselves and apply for internship opportunities.
