Steps for Finding, Applying and Registering for an Internship for Credit
- Find an internship: Career Services at Kean is a great place to start with your search. Other ways include finding one through professors, personal contacts, websites, and by reaching out directly to employers as well. Kean's Online Employment & Internship Portal lists numerous internship opportunities in every major. Other popular sites for internship opportunities include: indeed.com, internships.com and linkedin.com.
- Apply for your internship: Once you have identified internship opportunities, you can apply on your own or work with Career Services on your resume and application.
- Register your internship: After receiving an official offer, register your internship through Kean’s Online Employment & Internship Portal. All internships must be reviewed and approved by Career Services and your Academic Department to determine if the criteria to receive credit has been met.
