Internships

Why Internships?

When preparing for your career, nothing can compare to the value of experience. All students in the Welch College of Business get that experience by participating in at least one internship. That’s right, at least one. We encourage students to work in a variety of settings in order to gauge which types of careers and environments best fit their skill sets and needs.

A Few Myths About Internships

  • “I heard I can’t get credit for an internship if I am getting paid for it.”
    NOT TRUE! Of course you can receive credit for paid internships. In fact, The Career Development and Placement Center prefers that our students get paid internships. You don’t have to choose one or the other.

  • “I did an internship over the summer and I want to get credit for it.”
    In order to receive credit for an internship (usually a 390 or 391 course), students must meet with not only the Career Development and Placement Center, but also with their academic advisor in the College of Business before beginning the internship. There are forms that need to be filled, and we also like to communicate with individuals on-site to know what type of supervision and professional development you will be given in your internship.

  • “I have to go through the list of companies provided by Sacred Heart in order for my internship to count.”
    It’s true that the College of Business and the Career Placement center have established great relationships with hundreds of businesses throughout the area, (see below) it’s not true that you have to use businesses within our network. In fact, we love to expand that network to include new sites. Students who are seeking internships with professional organizations—from their hometowns to around the globe—go through the same process as students who secure internships through PioneerNetwork. Meet with Career Placement and with your advisor to get started.

  • I’m just a freshman or a sophomore. It’s too early for me to think about getting an internship.”
    Do sports teams wait until the 3rd quarter to start scoring points? Why should students wait until Junior year to start looking at internships? Get started early. Attend career and internship fairs. Develop a resume. Ask questions and get the answers that will get you hired. It’s never too early.
