Seeking an Internship While Studying Abroad

Students who are studying abroad are often interested in applying for internships that begin when they return to the states. Since our on-line interview scheduling program is for “on-campus” interviews, it is not possible for students in a foreign country to participate in the on-line job search process. Study abroad students will have “read only” access during their foreign experience.

To apply for a position while studying abroad, students:

  • Must inform the Internship Program of their study abroad plans.
  • Will receive email instructions for participation.

Study Abroad students may also seek internships in the following ways:

  • Attend the Spring or Fall Career Fair and inform recruiters of their study abroad plans.
  • Seek an internship through any of the job search sites on the Job Search Web Sites page

(http://intranet.smeal.psu.edu/intern/websites.html).

Study abroad students will still be required to:

  • Notify the program of their internship
  • Complete an “Internship Acceptance Form”
  • Provide a job description on company letterhead for program approval
