​​​Finding an Internship

​​​I need help with my résumé and cover letters. Where can I go?

Request an appointment with Graciela Kenig at gkenig@depaul.edu or Michael Elias at melias@depaul.edu. OR, take advantage of the Career Center’s walk-in service OR, email your resume and/or cover letter directly to peer advisors at peercareeradvisor@depaul.edu for feedback. ​

​I am looking for an internship. Can you help me find one?

If you have already attended an orientation workshop, request an appointment with Graciela Kenig at gkenig@depaul.edu, or Michael Elias at melias@depaul.edu. If not, sign up for an orientation workshop under Undergraduate Program or Graduate Program. ​

When should I start looking for internships?

Ideally, you should attend an orientation workshop and begin looking for internships one or two quarters before you want to start working in an internship. ​

Can you place me in an internship?

We do not offer direct placement. Rather, we provide you with resources to help you find the best internship for you. The first step is to attend an orientation workshop. Orientation dates for the current quarter are under Undergraduate Program or Graduate Program.  ​

What if I find an internship on my own (not through DePaul’s website)?

As long as the internship meets the program’s Internship Position Standards you can apply for internship credit. Follow the steps at How to Apply for Internship Credit​
