"My internship at Hanger Prosthetics & Orthotics was an ideal supplement to my Cornell education and strongly reaffirmed my commitment to medicine. Above and beyond going to work full-time, developing technical skills in the lab, and gaining experience working with patients, I got to help people walk every day. It doesn't get much better than that."
-- Jessica Johnson '07
Internships provide an invaluable opportunity to gain practical work experience in potential career fields and to assist in preparation for graduate study. We encourage every Cornell student to complete at least one internship, and we provide support through a number of programs to make the experiences as productive and meaningful as possible.

JOIN is designed to help students, employers, and alumni log in and find out about internships and jobs that are specifically oriented to Cornell students.
