  Internships/Co-op Programs
Internships and cooperative education programs allow students to apply their skills and knowledge learned in the classroom to actual on-the-job experiences. Many employers offer these programs for students to learn more about a particular career field, gain real world work experience, and possibly earn money to help finance their education. Most public and private institutions have partnerships with companies to employ their students. These programs are not based on financial need and are available to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.

Searching for an internship or cooperative education program is very similar to conducting a scholarship or full-time job search. Knowing what and who your resources are is key to a successful internship search. Ask your academic advisor or department administrator about these programs.

Other effective ways to find an internship or co-op program are by:
Searching the Internet
Reading through directories
Viewing Bulletin Boards
Asking Professors and Faculty Members
Contacting the employers yourself
And never forget friends and family employed in the industry you are pursuing a career. They may have connections in your career field and may be able to provide you with contacts as well.
