 Internships

Internships provide students with the opportunity  to network with individuals in their area of interest, add strong credentials to their resumes, and real world experience. According to Student Site Evaluation Reports in 2012:

  • 98% of students who did an internship found their internship to be relevant to their major.
  • 88% of students described their internship experience as “outstanding” or “very good.”
  • 97% of students would recommend their internship experience to a friend.

Catherine Doederlein works diligently with students to find internship opportunities that meet their needs and expectations. In addition, NIU holds an Internship Fair annually that allows students interested in internship opportunities to communicate directly with companies who are seeking interns.
