Local Internships

Organizations that are offering internships in the area often reach out to us directly for interns, and the details of the position are posted in our PoliSci Events and Opportunities newsletter, emailed to students every Monday while class is in session. In addition to checking the newsletter, you might want to peruse the following websites.

The College of Charleston Career Center maintains a database that contains internship and job opportunities known as Handshake; sign in to view current listings here. In addition to listing jobs, the Career Center provides resources to help you craft a resume, job search or apply to graduate school. This Helpful Web Links page may help with some of your questions, or you can contact the Career Center staff to assist you directly; they are always eager to help!
