The CIA Career Center lists opportunities which it feels will be of interest to students and alumni. We cannot guarantee the reliability or character of the listing from an employer. We cannot be responsible for potential disputes or contractual difficulties with contacts listed by the office. We strongly advise applicants to research and screen potential employers carefully.
Many students can get credit for an internship. But there are exceptions within certain majors, so it is important to check with your department head, the Career Center, or Academic Services prior to the experience.
