Cornell student works in a lab as an intern.

Completing one or more internships before you enter the workforce can help you test drive different careers to find out what really appeals to you, as well as build a resume that shows employers you’re ready to work in their field.

One Course At A Time facilitates high-value internship opportunities because you won’t need to fit your internship around your class schedule. You will be able to spend your 18-day block working full time on an internship with no other class work to complete while earning class credit. This means you can see what a full day in the work environment looks like, participate in a project beginning to end as a critical team member, and meet key people who may be future employers or advocates in your chosen industry.

Our Berry Career Institute has career coaches and resources that will help you identify internships and job shadow opportunities that fit with your interests. Complete your Cornell application, then stop in to chat with a career counselor when you visit campus.
