Introduction An internship through Career Services is an opportunity for you to "earn while you learn." While we will help you find any opportunity to assist you in getting professional experience in your field, the Career Services Center is only able to oversee paid internships due to employment guidelines and liability concerns with limited exceptions for JUSTICE Majors. Get paid and get class credit at the same time. Student internships are a unique form of education which integrates classroom study with paid, planned, and supervised work experience in the public and private sectors.
