Undergraduate Internships

Finding an Internship 

Fisher students have access to numerous resources for finding and applying for internships. These resources include two annual career fairs, hundreds of positions posted in Handshake as online applications or as on-campus interview opportunities, along with many opportunities to meet recruiters through classroom experiences and student organizations.

When to Intern

Many employers use their internship program as a pipeline for recruiting full-time talent. This means employers are interested in recruiting students to intern the summer before their final year at Ohio State. However, many employers are often seeking students for internships in central Ohio and the rest of the country year-round.

When to Interview for Internships

Employers with college recruiting programs often begin their interviewing process as early as September and October for junior class students. However, students can find employers recruiting for internship opportunities throughout the year including both the Fisher Fall Career Fair in early September and the Fisher Spring Career Fair at the start of the Spring Semester.

How do We Define Internship

An "internship" is defined as any work experience occurring at any point during college that accumulates a minimum of 120 hours of work within a six (6) consecutive month period, in which the student receives supervision and/or mentorship and in which the student applies their knowledge and skills learned during their time in college. An Internship may be paid or unpaid and may be for credit or not for credit. A student's work on their own start-up business qualifies as an Internship if it meets the other stated criteria.
