Internships can help you discover career preferences. Due to the professional nature of internships (as opposed to traditional student jobs), a successful experience can also help you earn valuable letters of recommendation. In some cases this work experience may even lead to the offer of a regular job in the firm or agency with which you have your internship.
There are a number of ways to learn about potential internships. The broadest range of internships can be accessed through CLA Career Services. The GoldPASS system allows you to post your resume so that companies with available internships can view it. International internships can be found though the Learning Abroad Center. Information about specialized internships that apply only to economics majors is distributed through the economics department listserv. Students must have officially declared their major to have access to the listserv. Contact the undergraduate advisors at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the major declaration process.
Visit the Economics Student Organization for more internship information.
