Internship FAQs

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), internships by definition is "a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting."

What does that mean? Internships can be defined by the following characteristics:

Internships help to develop your professional skills. No, internships don't have to be related to your major. In fact, they can be completely opposite of your major. Regardless, the experience should help you narrow your focus of a potential career path.

Internships provide you with feedback and mentorship. Unlike a traditional job, the goal of an internship is to proactively set goals for your professional growth and understand at the end of the experience how well you achieved those goals. 

Internships provide you with structure and networking connections. Most internship providers know you're there to learn and to grow as a young professional. In addition to the weekly hours and responsibilities, part of the growth process is introducing you to others in the field.

Internships teach you important skills. This is a key concept. Internships are, by design, developed for the sole purpose of educating you about the field/industry. Its a form of training that introduces you to the company without the burdens associated with a full-time position. So no, you should not be getting coffee or washing dishes all day. You should be learning about how a company is run, important values to the field, and what a potential entry-level position may look like.

Internships aren't meant to replace full-time positions. Your work as an intern is meant to complement the work of permanent employees, not replace it. You're there to learn and to train, not to provide labor at a discounted rate.

The biggest misconception for finding internships is that there's one master list with every internship listing. unfortunately, that's simply not true. Check out the various internship lists and search engines below.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the internship coordinator at brittanygrubbs@advising.ufl.edu

You can earn academic credit for an internship in two ways:

1) You can contact the department that houses your major (political science, English, Psychology, etc.) There is like an experiential learning coordinator who handles internships and can enroll you in course credit that can count toward your major.

2) You can enroll in IDS4940, which is open to students in any major. This course counts toward your upper-division elective credits, and ranges from 1-3 credits. Each credit represents 50 work hours over the course of the semester, so 50 hours = 1 credit, 100 hours = 2 credits, and 150 hours = 3 credits. You must complete the application by the required deadline. The application, syllabus, and deadlines are available under the Coursework section of this website.
