Finding an Internship

The following resources and considerations are intended to aid you in your search for the perfect internship.

Internship experience can help students stand out in today’s crowded job market. English majors and minors have acquired reading, writing, and research skills which a variety of employers find highly desirable. If a student doesn’t have any experience in a particular career field, an internship can provide the experience needed to make a successful entry into the workforce. A semester-long stint at a publishing house, law office, media outlet, or government or nonprofit agency allows students to:

  • Take their skills outside of the classroom and into a specific company or organization
  • Make important contacts
  • Acquire references to use as they apply for positions in the future
  • Try out possible fields of interest before they graduate
  • Gain valuable skills to list on their resumes
  • See the value of an English degree beyond the obvious path of teaching
  • Narrow down the type of writing they’re interested in doing in their careers
  • Learn how to interact with colleagues
  • Get an early chance to experience the world of work firsthand

Important Considerations

  • Many internships only require a semester-long commitment.
  • Supervisors are often quite willing to work around a student’s academic schedule.
  • Students can earn college credit while they intern (see below).
  • Junior year is the ideal time to complete an internship, but opportunities exist for everyone.
  • Even if students don’t have any related experience, an enthusiastic, eager attitude can help them receive an internship.
  • Students can complete more than one internship during their undergraduate years.
  • Internship experience can serve as a powerful navigational tool. It will allow students to focus their interests and uncover professional strengths and weaknesses.

Finding an Internship

Past interns have worked for magazines, newspapers, literary agencies, publishing houses, public relations firms, law firms, television and radio stations, museums, theatres, non-profits, and more.

Internships & Work Placements

What are they and why should I get one?

An internship will help you to make valuable industry contacts and ultimately to find out if that type of job is right for you in the longer term. It will also give you a head start over less experienced applicants when applying for full time graduate jobs and given the stiff competition out there now that can be a significant advantage.

Many of these schemes are targeted at first or second years and so you need to start searching and applying for the roles early. You should also bear in mind that there are relatively few vacancies for the number of graduates out there so the competition is tough – the earlier you start to think about them the better.

It’s all in the name

Student Internships and work placements are also marketed under many different guises, some of which we have included below with a brief explanation. Essentially they vary only slightly but you should read each job description carefully before applying to make sure you are clear about what it entails:

  • Internships – A phrase that is increasingly used by large companies and refers to a placement within their organisation. It is the same thing as a placement or the more generic term work experience. Internships can be paid or un-paid and last for anything from 2 weeks to a year.
  • Student work experience – this is the catch-all title and covers every different type of role. Each employer uses this in a slightly different way so becareful to always read the job description carefully
  • Sandwich placements – assessed paid work which is part of your course. It is often of one year’s duration and usually takes place inbetween your second and final year of study.
  • Work-based project – A specific piece of assessed work for a course, undertaken at an employer’s premises.
  • Student work placement – A period of work experience, which can be paid or unpaid, and is part of a course of study. This can be arranged through your university with an employer or by yourself and is for an agreed period of time.
  • Work Shadowing – Where a student observes a member of staff working in an organisation, and so gains an understanding of what a particular job entails. These roles are often unpaid and are used mainly to gain experience

So to get your head start look at the roles in the box above, find one you like and Apply!

Unpaid Internships for High School Students

Many students are interested in holding an unpaid internship within a Stanford science or engineering laboratory. The Office of Science Outreach is not able to help individual students identify a host lab or project, but you will find some tips in the document to the left.

Students must be at least 16 years old to hold an internship within a research lab, due to the university’s liability policies. Stanford cannot arrange on-campus housing for unpaid interns.

The Department of Labor uses six criteria to determine whether a student working in a lab is an intern or a university employee. To be classified as an internship:

  1. Training is similar to that which would be given at a school;
  2. Training is for the benefit of the trainee/intern;
  3. Intern does not displace regular employees;
  4. Intern works under close observation;
  5. Stanford derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern and on occasion, the department/lab’s operations may actually be impeded;
  6. Interns are not entitled to a job at the completion of the training/internship period.

Faculty interested in hosting interns informally will find a resource to help them here. (2nd bullet)
