Internship Guide

Most employers say that related work or intern experience is one of the key things they look for when hiring new graduates, and graduate schools often look for internship and work experience as well.  Combining one or more internship learning experiences with your Augsburg education will serve you well. You will be able to:

  • Apply what you learn in your courses,  making connections between theory and practice
  • Gain new knowledge, understanding, and skills
  • Discover what you want to do, or don’t want to do as a potential career path

Finding an Internship

We suggest you meet with a staff person in Strommen Career & Internship Services to identify your interests, skills and goals. The staff are an excellent resource for internship leads. Students are also encouraged to develop their own leads as well by talking with faculty members, family, and friends.

Below is a sampling of several resources available to help you find internship opportunities.  Check the links below and meet with an internship specialist to find the resources that may be better fit for your interests.
