Don’t Just Get an Education: Experience It

The best complement to a classroom education is a real-world education. Experiential learning has been a cornerstone of the Norwich student experience for 200 years.

A strong internship places you in a work environment where you test and refine the skills you’ve learned in the classroom. So it should come as no surprise that more and more employers are expecting to see internships on resumes when they hire college grads. Internships can be paid, unpaid, for academic credit and not for credit. Nearly two out of three people hired straight out of college have internship experience.

WHERE TO START: Internship Guide

KNOW YOURSELF:

  • Explore companies or organizations that relate to your field of study.
  • Speak to your academic advisor or Norwich’s Internship Coordinator. 
  • Ask yourself, what are the specific goals you would like to gain from an internship, e.g. “I want to see how a marketing plan develops from beginning to end.”

CREATE AN ACTION PLAN:

  • Create a list of target companies that match your interests, skills, and values.
  • Research organizations and their available career opportunities.
  • Set, track, and meet short-term goals, urgent deadlines, and small milestones (internship timeline).

TAP IN TO YOUR NETWORK:

  • Use social media, such as LinkedIn, to reach out to Norwich alumni, family, and friends.
  • Set up informational interviews or job-shadowing experiences to make connections within your field of study.
  • Find Mentorship with Class2Class, a special virtual networking program offered by the NU Alumni Association.
