An internship is a pre-professional work experience related to a student's major or career goals. Internships may take place over one semester or for a customized period of time. They may be paid or unpaid, full-time or part-time. An ideal internship is one that reflects a partnership among the sponsoring organization, the student, and Case Western Reserve University. The learning contract and support of the Career Center distinguishes an internship from other workplace experiences, and students within all majors and colleges may participate. No credit or transcript notation is awarded for successful completion.
