We work collaboratively with you to place you in a full-time internship that matches your interests. Our experience and support is particularly helpful, given the highly competitive nature of summer internships. While Chicago Semester cannot guarantee paid internships, students in certain fields, such as accounting, finance, business management, marketing and human resources, may have the opportunity to apply for some.


Through your internship, you’ll gain relevant, hands-on experience that sets you apart in the job market. Your internship will also help you:

  • Strengthen your resume
  • Guide your career path decision-making
  • Open the door to professional networking opportunities
  • Prepare for the demands of full-time work


Along with your internship, you’ll take a professional seminar and can choose one additional course for academic credit.
