Internships and Co-ops? But why?

Image result for internship

Internships and Co-0ps are great for a number of reasons, resume builder (make yourself marketable), skill enhancer, career exploration, potential full-time employment and more.   Here is an article about why.

BUS3900 is an SBE course for internship credit.   Learn more about how to get academic credit here.

All of the SBE business programs offer an elective option for internship credit with BUS3900.   The course does require pre-planning, development of a proposal with a faculty member in SBE and committee approval.

Keep in mind the following deadlines if seeking academic credit for internship:

  • Spring Semester by Dec 1
  • Summer Semester by April 1
  • Fall Semester by July 1

Feel free to contact the SBE Academic Advisor, Jodie Filpus-Paakola, to discuss further.

Read emails from SBE and faculty for opportunities to apply to various internships as well as the university’s Handshake account with Career Services

Prior to your advising appointment…

  • Run your Audit through MyMichiganTech (uAcheive Degree Audit) *tip: Run “Latest”, not a possible program from the drop down menu, using the drop down will bring up an audit using the 2018-19 degree requirements and not YOUR Catalog Term
  • Review your degree completion progress and requirements left
  • Note any questions or concerns about your Audit
  • Develop a proposed Spring and Summer course list
  • Check course availability and develop a schedule (Spring available now, Summer shortly)

 

Pitfalls to avoid:

  • Meet with Academic Advisor at least once a year
  • Verify you don’t have holds (parking tickets, unpaid bills, discipline, safety first, etc)
  • Look at pre-requisites courses to ensure you have taken them.
  • Course descriptions can be found hyperlinked in your audit.
  • Be sure you meet any restrictions for a course

Industry sees internships as a “trial” run for possible full-time professional employment and it is a chance for you to test the waters with a company or a particular job.
