Internship Coordinator, College of Arts and Sciences
Once you have been accepted to the Career Ready Internship Program you'll need to track down an internship that fits within its parameters. There are several approaches you can take. See the detailed guide below to help you find a position. Before applying to any internship, we highly recommend having your resume reviewed by the Career Services Center.
Final approval for funding from the Great Lakes grant is contingent on your ability to secure an approved internship position. Approval of internships is left to the discretion of our Internship Coordinator, Sarah Curry. Please be sure to contact her for approval of any internships you find via Handshake, external search engines, or faculty contacts.
Handshake is Marquette's NEW online career platform that can help you in your search for jobs and internships. Students can access Handshake by using their Checkmarq/eMarq username and password.
Please be aware that there will be internships you find on Handshake that are paid. These do not qualify for the Career Ready Internship Program. Only unpaid internships qualify for the program. Additionally, all internships found through Handshake or through another internship search method need to be approved for funding by a Career Ready Internship Program staff member. So, please inform Sarah Curry or Rosemary Stuart if you wish to pursue an internship opportunity that is not on the Internship Postings page on our website so that we can consider it for approval for Great Lakes funding.
Other job search sites like Indeed or LinkedIn have internship postings as well. You can find links to these various databases on our website. These databases will include both paid and unpaid positions, so pay careful attention to the job description to see if the employer offers compensation. All internships found through outside search engines need to be approved by a Career Ready Internship Program staff member to see if they qualify for funding through the Great Lakes grant and/or academic credit. So, please inform Sarah Curry or Rosemary Stuart if you will be pursuing an internship opportunity that is not on the Career Ready Internship Postings page on our website so that we can approve it.
