Only CAS students need to register their internship through CTM. Please check here to find out how your school guides you on receiving credit for an internship placement.

If you are a College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) student and you have an internship site secured, meaning you have been offered and accepted the internship position, you must register to attend the internship orientation. At orientation representatives from CTM and Advising will walk you through the internship process and the forms that must be submitted for registration.

If you are a CAS student come ready with the internship description and an idea of your internship objectives (i.e. what you intend to gain/learn from this experience). For an example of an objective, look at the beginning of one of your previous course syllabuses.

How to Obtain a For-Credit Internship

Attend one of the Internship Orientations listed under the session in which you hope to register the internship (see dates above). The last date listed is the final Internship Orientation available for the session.

Don’t wait until the last minute. Give yourself time to search, interview, secure, and register for the Internship Orientation. If your degree program requires an internship experience or you see the value of taking advantage of this opportunity as an elective, start searching for an internship two semesters prior to the semester you wish to complete the internship for credit.

Resumes

Resumes are marketing tools to highlight your skills and abilities to a prospective employer, organization or graduate school. Writing a good one takes time, thought and work. Customize your resume to fit your skills and reach your audience. It should be a relatively brief, attractive document that convinces employers that you are the person they are looking for.

RESUME FORMATS

Interviews

While much of your interviewing style will stem from your personality, there are numerous facets of interviewing that, if done well, will help you generate a professional image. We prepare you to face ‘One to One Interview’, ‘Panel Interview’ and ‘Video interviews as today employers use a variety of interview methods in finding the strongest candidate. Let us help you better prepare yourself for all scenarios so you can increase your interview skills and learn about the dynamics of interviewing well.
