Jobs/Internships - FAQ
Is a professional internship required of all students?
No. Robertson School of Government (RSG) students are not required to do an internship. However, for students who enter RSG with little or no background in government, an internship can be a wise move to help build one's résumé and experience.

Upon graduation, most RSG students seek employment in four main areas: government, politics, nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations and academics. Some of the institutions where RSG students intern and find employment after graduation include: the Republican National Committee, the Democratic National Committee, the United States Senate and House of Representatives, various cabinet departments, public policy think tanks, issue advocacy groups and various municipal and state governments.
How does the Robertson School of Government assist me in networking for intern and career opportunities?
Students are invited to join the www.RegentAlumni.org online community where they can network with all Regent alumni across the country and the world.
