Graduate internships can be a great opportunity for students to get real life experience in a variety of settings. ICE IGERT members have completed internships in industry (Abbott Laboratories, Procter & Gamble), as well as in international laboratories (NSF-sponsored East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes program).
I'm interested in a graduate internship...what are the next steps?
1. Meet with your Advisor to discuss strategies related to internship scheduling, scope, potential internship sites and contacts, and overall value for career development.
2. Meet with your Graduate Program Manager. Internships are typically offered in the summer months. Internships during the academic year may have implications for student benefits and graduate enrollment, so be sure to work with your graduate department.
3. Search for opportunities. Industrial internships are often posted on corporate "career" pages, so try a thorough internet search. Below, are a few links to a few sites who have advertised graduate internships in the past. Occasionally, companies contact ICE directly, and listings will be posted below.
