Internships & Volunteer Opportunities

Internship Opportunities

Internships provide a great way for you to obtain practical work experience in your chosen major or career. Generally, internships are short-term, paid or unpaid, and are a great way to get your "foot in the door" within an organization which can potentially lead to a full-time career opportunity. Whether paid or unpaid, internships are a valuable tool to jump-start your career and are great resume builders. Students with internship experiences often have a competitive edge when job searching. Apply for an internship today.

You must apply directly with the organization/company. If you are interested in receiving college credit for your internship experience, please contact the VVC Cooperative Work Experience (Co-Op) program.
