  • Internships

    Internships provide an ideal way to gain entry-level training and better prepare for a career path. An internship is an opportunity to gain hands-on education, network within companies and organizations, and learn what you like/dislike about your target field or role.

    Internships are increasingly important for landing jobs upon graduation. Not only do companies use their interns as a potential candidate pool for future full-time roles, but they expect candidates to have completed one (1) or more internships before graduation.

    Students can search for internships using the new Business JobLink platform or via Clemson JobLink. Via these platforms, students can conduct a search based on major, industry and/or geographic location.

    Students can complete internships via a number of avenues:

    No Credit
    Non-credit internships are solely to gain experience, build a professional network, and be documented on the resume.

    Academic Credit
    Each department in the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business has an internship course with specific requirements. Visit your department internship faculty rep for more details.

    Clemson's INT program
    The INT program documents the internship experience on the transcript, but counts as zero-credit hours. This is a cost-friendly option for students whose internship company requires that they receive credit. There are options for full-time and part-time internship courses. INT courses are offered through the Center for Career & Professional Development's INT program.

    UPIC On-Campus Internships
    The University Professional Internship and Co-Op Program, or UPIC, provides opportunities for students to intern on-campus. Each semester, UPIC opportunities are posted in Clemson JobLink for the upcoming semester. Applications are competitive. Learn more.

    Clemson International Internship Program
    Through Clemson's International Internship Program, internships are available in a variety of global locations. Internships take place during the Summer and students enroll in a special INT 3010 course which yields 3 credits of elective credit.

    Micro Internships
    Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns.

  • Essential Skill Development

    As a business student, what will set you apart from the crowd in today's competitive global workplace? The answer that employers consistently say is soft skills, which we refer to as essential skills.

    We want to ensure our students' success by integrating essential skills with the pillars of the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business: Innovation, Communication, Professionalism, Capitalism, and Perseverance.

    Students are encouraged to participate in workshops, events and dialogues facilitated by peers, faculty, staff, alumni, and business speakers. The conversations that take place focus on career preparation and professional growth, grounded in the University's core competencies.

    What Students Say:

    I would love to just get my foot in the door and start building leadership skills, so that I may feel more confident in running for leadership positions within my organizations, and to also prepare me for potential future management roles. I also think it would be a really great experience to connect with my peers who are motivated, like-minded, and in a similar position as myself.
    I will definitely think about my strengths and weaknesses from the assessments we took and how I can use [them] in my leadership roles understand other peoples' strengths as well. I also thought the communication theories were very interesting it was insightful to take that time to reflect and understand how we can improve skills.
    I am going to be a better communicator and am going to push myself to have a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset.
