Fall Internship Countdown!

The fall semester is fast approaching, and internships are on the mind of many a returning student. Currently, there are more than 1500 internships posted on AU CareerWeb, and more coming in daily!

For further inspiration and background information on great places for internships (OneDayOneInternship.com), or jobs, for that matter (OneDayOneJob.com), I still recommend these pages by job-hunting-survivor-and-entrepreneur Willie Franzen. For my SOC advisees, here’s a page with just the communication-related companies he’s listed. Scroll down the list; you’ll be amazed how many are DC-area companies! (Or pick another tag and you’ll get a list of all the intern-hiring companies he’s profiled from Washington, DC.)

For a different, and totally local, source of internship info, there’s also DC Intern Net, where you can sign up for regular email updates of great gigs.  But these go to students nationwide. At the end of the day, don’t forget all the employers who are seeking AU students specifically through AU CareerWeb, where you can also set up an email alert system, as described in a previous post. Just remember, if you want or need to do an internship for credit, the deadline to get offered the position, accept it and hand it all the paperwork to register is September 13th!
