  • Find out how to prepare for a career in a specific field.

  • Develop a network of professional contacts for future opportunities and references.

  • Learn about the workplace skills to develop in order to build a strong resume.

  • Find out what to expect when transitioning into a full-time job.

Loyola University New Orleans adheres to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) definition of an internship which is described as: “A form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent."
