Applying for Internship & Co-op Credit

+ Program Overview
 
  • The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) is always keeping track of the attributes and transferable skills employers are looking for. You've probably used many of these in your part-time jobs, class projects or coursework, or in your extracurricular activities in campus groups, leadership, volunteering, and other personal projects:

    • Ability to communicate with others inside and outside the organization
    • Strong understanding of role within organization or project (sometimes referred to as teamwork)
    • Making decisions and solving problems
    • Planning, organizing, and prioritizing
    • Obtaining and processing information
    • Analyzing qualitative and quantitative information (and reaching evidence-based conclusions)
    • Technical skills related to the job
    • Creating and editing written reports
    • Persuading others
    • Professionalism and work ethic

    In addition to those above, there are a few other crucial things you're honing throughout your degree. You might have some of these:

    • Diversity, common knowledge, and an appreciation of multiple perspectives
    • Critical thinking, with an appreciation for the complexities of social, business, and structural entities
    • Understanding of people and groups: observing and evaluating how they process information and make decisions, and how cultural or societal norms affect the way they see the world
    • An understanding of human interactions across world cultures and time
    • Global perspective and awareness of challenges in the twenty-first century
    • New approaches and creative solutions
    • Receptive to new ideas and change
    • Original ideas and innovative thinking

    These are skills that can and should be incorporated into your resume, cover letter, and interviews. 

 
  • Please review the specific requirements pertaining to your major below. 
    Review the instructions for completing the application for internship/co-op credit here.

    You have until the last day of Final Registration of each semester (in which you plan to intern) to apply for credit. Applicants must allow for up to 10 days of processing. Please do not wait until the last minute. It is highly recommended that you apply for the credit the semester previous to the one you plan to intern.

    NOTE: All students are required to meet with Education Abroad BEFORE applying for an International Internship. Students seeking academic credit for international internships must also apply for approval through Handshake.  Please contact Nadine Jones at njone119@kennesaw.edu to schedule a meeting.  For more information, visit the Education Abroad Internships Page.
