Students Seeking Internships


Academic year internships are part-time, while summer internships may be part or full-time. Employers are encouraged to offer paid internships, especially during the summer. Sponsoring organizations offering non-paying internships must adhere to the United States Department of Labor internship legal criteria established for volunteer internships.

If you are researching available internship positions, the Career Center recommends that you meet with a career counselor. They can be a very rich networking resource. Additionally, students of Notre Dame can register with GATORWORKS to view current employer listings of open internship positions.
