In an information session Nov. 18, students will learn about summer federal and corporate internships that pay $470-$570 a week.
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, a non-profit organization whose mission is “to champion Hispanic success in higher education” and increase education for Latinos, will highlight internships open to anyone.
Rene Gonzalez, senior executive director of student services, is scheduled at 1 p.m. Nov. 18 in the MESA Center in Room 204 of Chance Academic Center.
“Most federal internships are not designed to get jobs but to educate students,” he said. “However, with corporate internships, one third to half of the interns get offered jobs when they graduate.”
Ten- to 15-week internships work on research assignments or projects with sponsors such as Broadcasting Board Governors, U.S. Agency for International Development and U.S. Department of Labor.
Nov. 15 is the deadline for spring 2014 internships, Jan. 9-April 25; Nov. 1 is the early deadline for summer 2014 internships, May 30-Aug. 8; and the regular deadline is March 3. Applications for fall 2014, Aug. 22-Dec. 5, can be submitted between March 3 and June 13.
