Attached is a short PowerPoint that includes some helpful links on the first two slides. No matter where you are at in your internship process (even if you haven’t started yet but have an interest), I would strongly encourage you to view the details on the links provided for more insight on those topics. My office, the Career Enrichment Network, is a great resource to help you get started by meeting with a Liberal Arts Career Coach and to direct you appropriately to your Academic Adviser and your specific Department that oversees your major(s). Don’t be afraid to utilize the resources available to you; we are all here to help you.
 
If after you have read up on the links provided and you still have questions, feel free to reach out to me and I’ll be happy to help and/or put you in touch with your department representative if applicable. The second slide in the presentation has links to the department web pages specific to the departments that were represented this afternoon. Those are also great resources if you have a major in one of those departments.
