Internships and Co-ops
Take your career for a spin.

Internships give you experience and get you noticed. When it comes to landing one, Rutgers students have two big advantages. Our location, between New York City and Washington, DC, puts you in the middle of the world’s biggest employment center. And our career services network, with six offices across the Camden, Newark, and New Brunswick campuses, supports you with one of the country’s biggest collegiate employment operations:
  • 12 career fairs every year—the largest number in the country
  • 4,450 on-campus student job interviews annually
  • 200 career seminars and panel events every year
That means you get access to hundreds of employers and thousands of internships. Who’s hiring Rutgers interns? Fortune 500 companies. Major media outlets. Global corporations. World-class arts and culture groups. International government and nonprofit organizations. So back up that college transcript with a Rutgers internship. Your résumé will thank you for it.

3 Roads to Follow  
Test-drive a career—or two or three. Rutgers gives you several options for putting your talents to work:
  • Internships give you significant work experience—paid or unpaid; part time or full time; for the summer, a semester, or a year—while earning college credit.
  • Externships let you try on a career through a short-term commitment—shadowing a professional for a day or contributing to a team project for a week.
  • Cooperative education places you full time in a salaried, for-credit position that often leads to a job offer.
