Internships give you an edge in the job market, and help you decide what kind of career you want to build.
Each year, more than 400 students complete internships for academic credit as part of their education at SUNY Potsdam. There are so many opportunities to choose from-whether you want to intern in New York City, internationally or right here on campus.
The global pandemic has made on-site internships more complicated, but we're going to help you meet those challenges!
We can help with:
- Using our software tools to locate remote-work internships
- Identifying and combining micro-internships to build a full credit-bearing experience
- Ensuring that on-site internships have the right safety procedures in place
- Making sure you know what internship sites expect of you regarding PPE, social distancing, etc.
- Prepping for online interviews or applications for your dream internship
- Locating opportunities for next year
Our graduates are #PotsdamProud that they've learned how to solve complex problems - both in and out of the classroom. This is no different! We'll help you demonstrate your tenacity during this pandemic, so make your appointment to get started on your internship experience today. And check out this link - this is what you need to know before your appointment.
For fall 2020, we are offering all online or phone appointments.
Hands-On Community Activism
When the global pandemic took hold this spring, Waldy Perez ’20 & ’22 was in the middle of an internship with the American Red Cross. His work for the non-profit changed as social distancing became the new normal and instead of installing smoke detectors at residents’ homes and educating them about fire safety, he switched gears and started working at blood drives throughout St. Lawrence County.
World Class Experiences
From working on the floor of the New York State Assembly to helping with hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, Julissa Santana ’20 graduated from SUNY Potsdam with unrivaled hands-on experiences.
When she was just 13 years old, Santana left her home in the Dominican Republic for a completely new beginning in New York City.
Stanley Martinez '19 spent his summer completing an eight-week-long internship at Double H Ranch, a camp that provides specialized programs for children dealing with life-threatening illnesses.
