The best way to gain experience is through an internship in your field of interest. Wheaton students participate in internships around the world to get first-hand experience in the workplace.
How do I find an internship?
Meet with a career coach to discuss your internship search. Your coach can help you discover what types of internships to explore and how you can prepare to land one. You'll work together to develop a customized plan to find and land an internship that is just right for you.
You can schedule a 1:1 Coaching Appointment with your career coach on Handshake.
