Internships and Career Advising

Internships can be a ticket to a full time job and are also a great “try before you buy” opportunity for both the employer and the intern. They can be part-time, full-time, for-credit, paid, during the semester, or over the summer. Most are run directly through a college or university’s career services office, but there are also other resources.

There is a free statewide resource: NH Internships which is an internship-only website designed to increase awareness of internship opportunities in New Hampshire. Also, Craig’s List can be a source for internships.

The NHCUC also has a Career Advising Committee with membership from most of NH’s colleges and universities.

For employers who want to learn more about offering an internship, the University System of NH has developed a brochure to assist businesses and organizations with the process of developing and running a successful internship program with one of our institutions. This comprehensive brochure is a handy reference guide for any organization that has an interest in setting up an internship. It also includes contact information at the four USNH institutions to help answer any questions that were not addressed in the brochure.

Tip: If you really want to do an internship at a particular company or organization and don’t see them listed, call them up! They may appreciate the initiative.
