ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDIVIDUAL WINTER TERM INTERNSHIPS


If you are interested in participating in an internship over winter term, you must complete the following steps:
 
  1. Identify the company or organization that you want to intern with.  The Career Development Center posts available opportunities on Handshake; you are also welcome to reach out to any organization you want to try and set up an internship. At this point, it can be useful to identify a faculty or staff sponsor who can help you identify appropriate internship opportunities.
  2. Apply directly to each organization you are considering.  Each application usually includes a resume and cover letter, but could also include additional documents (such as work samples, essays, or references). Many - but not all - employers conduct phone interviews.  You must receive and accept an offer from the organization before you can move onto the next step.
  3. Once you have accepted an internship offer, you must meet with your sponsor and complete an individual project proposal that corresponds to your internship location (on-campus, off-campus domestic, or off-campus international).  This will officially register your winter term project with the Office of the Registrar. 
For more information, visit the Career Development Center or refer to this FAQ page.


ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDIVIDUAL COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROJECTS

 
If you are interested in participating in an internship over winter term, you must complete the following steps:
  1. Search for community engagement opportunities at serve.oberlin.edu Winter term opportunities can be listed under the blue banner as they are received from community partners.
  2. Follow the instructions for applying to each opportunity. Some organizations may want a resume, others may want an interview.  You must complete these requirements and receive an acceptance from the community partner before proceeding to the next step.
  3. Contact the Bonner Center to identify your sponsor.  Someone at the Bonner Center will serve as a project sponsor. 
  4. Complete an individual project proposal that corresponds to your internship location (on-campus, off-campus domestic, or off-campus international).  This will officially register your winter term project with the Office of the Registrar.
