1. Make an Initial Appointment
In some departments, the faculty member coordinating internships is also happy to help students with the internship search process.
2. Research Opportunities
While securing an internship is the student’s responsibility, staff members in the Career Development Center and the faculty internship contact in each department are here to help students throughout the process. Research internship opportunities through the Hope College internship listings on Job Stop or networking contacts.
Most internship applications involve submitting a resume and cover letter or letter of inquiry as a first step, and at least one interview as a later step. Some also may involve submitting application forms/essay questions, portfolio demonstrations, or writing samples. Approved off campus semester programs require two applications, one for Hope and one for the program of interest. A staff member in Career Services can help with each step in the application process; call x7950 to make an appointment.
Once you have secured an internship, follow up with the appropriate faculty internship contact, Career Services, and any networking contacts that may have helped with the application process.
