CCI Internships | Kent State University


Start the path toward your career with an internship.  

Internships are typically taken for course credit (although they may be completed independently), and they may be paid or unpaid, depending on the employer offering the internship.  
 

CCI Internship Requirements and Contacts

While internships are requirements for many CCI majors and programs, many students and their employers have found positive internship experiences to be an essential step in their career preparation.  

Many of our schools have specific internship criteria and processes.  Visit each school’s specific internship web pages or contact the internship coordinator for your program before starting your internship to make sure you’ve met all of the necessary requirements.

Finding a Quality Internship

Here are just a few resources for starting your path to landing an internship.  Your school or advisor may be able to point you to additional resources.

  • Browse Flash at Work: Many employers list their internship opportunities on Kent State’s student job board.

  • Make an appointment with Kent State Career Development & Exploration: they can help you prepare your resume and identify internship opportunities.

  • Contact your school’s internship coordinator (above):  internship coordinators commonly receive internship opportunities before anyone else

  • Attend a job or career fair (various times throughout the year): many of the companies represented at Kent State career fairs have internship opportunities for students.  CCI holds its own Career Expo and resume workshops throughout the year.  We’ll announce dates to students on the web and via email.
