How do I get an Internship?

These are methods to help you find the right internship for you.

  • Spend some time thinking about what type of internship experience you are interested in completing
  • Brainstorm a list of organizations you would like to intern.  
  • Meet with your academic department's Internship Coordinator
  • Talk to potential employers at career and internship fairs.
  • Remember, if you do not find an internship experience listed with the organization you're interested in, go directly to the source and inquire further!  Visiting the employer website can provide you with details on any internship programs they may have, or provide you with the information you need to inquire further.
  • Don't forget to check on LinkedIn as well, where you can search for internship and entry-level job postings with companies related to people in your LinkedIn network.
  • Reach out to your network via an informational interview, and make sure you ask where the person you are interviewing would recommend starting to look for internships in your field of interest.
  • Make sure to fill out all of your paperwork correctly when applying for a posted internship! 
  • Need more help?  Check out all the different ways that the Career Development Center can assist you!
  • Check out the organizations’ websites and learn about their mission, noteworthy items that have been in the news, new program developments, and staff members.
  • Handshake is a great resource for researching organizations that are specifically invested in Minnesota State Mankato students (See link to Video/Screencast below)
  • Talk with people in your network to see if anyone has additional information about the organization you are interested in—often they have the “off the record” scoop and you can learn a lot from trusted sources.
  • Keep organized notes on your findings to use as a resource in the application and interview process.
  • Utilize your notes to form solid questions that you will ask at the end of your interview. You will impress them if you say “Upon doing some research, I found ____. Can you tell me more about this?”
  • In any interactions with employers, know that they are the experts. Approach conversations with curiosity, not authority.
