Career Planning and Internships: Campus Resources

Experiential Learning Program

Wesleyan's Internship/Experiential Learning Program provides support and guidance to students seeking learning experiences applicable to their coursework and career aspirations. The Internships/Experiential Learning Program offers presentations regarding the stages of the internship process; programs like the annual Internship Fair, Sophomore Shadow program, or Alumni/Student Speed-Networking; and one-on-one guidance and support in seeking and/or solidifying internships.

If you are seeking an internship in your field of interest, stop by the Student Success Center and meet with the Experiential Learning Coordinator, Jill Okes-Kincade.

Steps Toward an Internship

  1. Plan ahead.  When are you going to do this internship?  You need to meet with your stakeholders (faculty sponsor, the experiential learning coordinator, and potential site supervisor) 3 months prior to the next semester to select an internship, apply, and interview.  Come meet the Experiential Learning Coordinator to find the right internship for you!  (Located in the Student Success Center on the 1st floor of the Administration Building)
  2. Complete the Internship Form, including learning objectives, and meet with your stakeholders to solidify the information.
  3. Submit the form before the intended semester begins.
  4. Await approval, and begin your internship experience!
