How to find an Internship

Students are responsible for finding their own internships but there are a lot of resources available to help you. 

How to get started

  • Visit with your department internship coordinator to discuss prerequisites and internship requirements.
  • Search past internships completed by BYU-Idaho students for ideas of possible companies. (BYU-Idaho Internships: 2010-2014)
  • Discuss possible opportunities with your professors or faculty mentor.
  • Visit Career Navigator, the Alumni Office, LinkedIn, the Internship Service Missionaries, and utilize your own network to find opportunities.
  • Stop by the Career Networking Center (CNC) which offers the networking crash course, walk-in resume help, and general career planning. They can also direct you to the other career services offered by the Academic Discovery Center.  The CNC is located in MC 127A.
  • Have your resume and cover letter reviewed by meeting with a trained peer mentor. Practice interviews are also available. Schedule an appointment here. 
  • Once you have found an internship, follow the internship approval process.
