At Hood, students are not simply placed in internships. Instead, it is the student’s responsibility to research options and find a suitable site. As always, if you need advice or assistance in locating an internship stop by the career center or drop us an email.
The Washington Center Internship Experience
The Catherine Filene Shouse Center for Career Development and Experiential Education is pleased to announce a new partnership between Hood College and The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars!
This partnership offers our students a unique study away opportunity in our nation’s capital, at an exceptional value. Students spend a semester living and interning in Washington, D.C., while gaining career experience and making significant networking connections. Check out the website, and contact the career center for the application details.
Why do an internship?
"Internships do a lot more than just look good on your résumé. They are a good way to find out if that job is what you really want to do before investing into a full time job."
