The Value of Internships

Internships are the best way to know if the career path you're pursuing is the one for you. Building confidence and communication skills are some of the most valuable advantages. Additionally, it is not only a great resume builder, but internships also provide you with real world experience and a network. Companies that provide these internships do it to find potential full-time workers. About 60% of the time, an internship turns into a job offer!

And, it’s never too early for an internship. If your not sure where to start, check out these resources or attend the Internship Fair on November 14th from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at the Kansas Union.

Check out these helpful resources from the University Career Center to explore internships you might want to pursue.

UNIV 120: Introduction to Engaged Learning

 

Explore your interests in several engaged learning opportunities offered on KU’s campus, including service learning, research, global opportunities, and internships, through self-exploration and hands-on activities related to each experience. You will be able to identify the opportunity/opportunities in which you are most interested and create the materials needed to pursue that experience with the support of your instructor. By the end of the course, you will have a plan outlined to pursue the engaged learning opportunity/opportunities of your choice. You will also have completed at least one requirement related to fulfilling an experiential learning certificate. Sample syllabus

 

LA&S 490: Internship Exploration

 

Are you needing or wanting credit for an upcoming internship? If you want to complete an internship that is not related to your major, your department doesn't offer an internship course, you don't meet the requirements for your department's internship course, you are not accepted into a major yet, or you need to explore another option, you may want to consider EPSY 575/LA&S 490: Internship Exploration. This course requires permission from the instructor to enroll, additional coursework outside of the internship conducted via the Internet, working a minimum number of hours a week at the internship, and finding an internship via your own connections or the resources at the University Career Center. ***Approved course for Goal 6 (Innovation and Creativity) of the KU Core. Sample syllabus

 

 

Meet Megan!

Elia - design intern

Name: Megan Younker

Year: Senior

Major: Psychology

Company: Dole Human Development Center | University of Kansas

Location: Lawrence, KS

 

When Megan starting teaching 4 and 5 year-old children, she was skeptical that her experience would help her achieve her goal of becoming a middle or high school counselor. She quickly realized in order to understand adolescents, she’d need to learn about human development in all ages.

 

“This internship has beyond prepared me for building relationships with students and partnering with parents. With this experience I have confidence in pursuing my goal of becoming a school counselor. Although school counseling doesn't require standing in front of the classroom teaching, it involves and requires many useful skills I've learned at the Development Center.”

--Megan Younker
