How do I find an internship? Will someone help me?
Internships are unique to each student. Your career goals and aspirations will not be the same as another students’. Consequently, it is your responsibility to find an internship that works for you! You can do this in several ways. First, search the CSU Career Center Handshake database. Host companies that connect the LEAP Institute are directed to post their available internships here.


Handshake is a great tool to become familiar with because not only do employers post internships here, but job opportunities as well! Second, contact companies that you are interested in learning from to see if they have available internships, or would be interested in taking on an intern.
