Stevens students build their success early through hands-on internship experience.
Large corporations, small start-ups, non-profit organizations and government agencies all work with the Stevens Career Center to secure top internship talent from Stevens. Internships have proven to lead to high potential full time employment outcomes. Many Stevens students have as many as three summer internships prior to graduating.
Steps to Participate in the Internship Program:
- Attend an Orientation Workshop – Find out when the next workshop is by visiting the Career Center Events Calendar.
- Claim your Handshake account – Handshake is our internal job board where companies post internship opportunities for Stevens students. Handshake will launch August 2017!
- Upload your resume, which has been reviewed by a career advisor.
- Begin using Handshake – After 5 business days, your Handshake account will automatically be activated if steps 1-3 have been completed.
Each student is assigned a dedicated professional staff member as a Career Advisor. Advisors act as a resource from a student’s first year at Stevens to securing a post-graduation outcome. Students should engage with their Advisor early as they explore various career paths, prepare to market themselves in the internship search and prepare for making connections with industry representatives.
Obtaining an Internship
Stevens Summer Interns are highly recruited by employers across a diverse array of industries. Beginning as early as October, employers visit campus to meet with undergraduate and graduate students for workshops, Career Fairs, and first round interviews. All summer internships are paid and highly selective. Therefore, it is advised that students meet with a Career Advisor in their first semester at Stevens to begin preparing for their summer internship search.
