Internships

🔎 Looking for an internship?

The Office of Career Services can help you search for opportunities and notify you when internships become available through our Internships app. Here's how it works:

  1. Upload your resume (Need help with resume prep? Work with Career Services!)
  2. We review your resume, then reach out to you to help with your internship search and application(s).
  3. Of course, you can browse/apply for any listed internships on your own, but Career Services staff can help you network with potential employers, and often know of unlisted opportunities too.

  • Students must be enrolled with Indiana University East
  • For credit internships are only available for degree-seeking students
  • Junior or Senior grade level (Freshmen and Sophomores exceptions when appropriate)
  • GPA maintained at recommended 2.5 or above (some employers/placements require higher)
  • Critique of résumé by the Office of Career Services staff
  • Permission/approval from an academic faculty supervisor (in order to register and receive academic credit)

International students seeking curricular practical training (CPT), like an internship or job shadowing, must follow the rules that apply to your employment so you do not jeopardize your immigration status.​

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is work integral to your program that you do for an off-campus employer in your field of study while you are enrolled as a student. CPT may also be used when you want to work on campus more than 20 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters.

Review the rules and information regarding the CPT process on IU's Office of International Services (OIS) website.

Additional opportunities

Some specialized programs, like Psychology and Social Work, can connect you to even more internship opportunities. Talk to your advisor to learn more.

We recommend that you register your internship with our office, and take advantage of Career Services resources when applying!
