An important part of your academic experience might be hands-on learning in an internship. Northwestern’s Career Development Center will help you prepare for and find an internship that matches your career interests and talent. Students intern in and around Orange City, as well as in their hometowns or elsewhere in the U.S. through off-campus programs in cities like Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Whether you stay close to campus or venture across the country, an internship will build your resume, increase your professional network, and maybe even lead to landing your first job.
