Internship Application Workshops

 

Most paid college internships are available in the summer, with applications due between December and early March, and internships starting in late May or early June. Review your options, plan, and create a list of items required for applications about six months before applications are due. The Office of Workplace Learning offers in-depth internship application workshops in August and January to guide currently-enrolled Alamo Colleges students to prepare competitive applications.

 

The Internship Application Workshops are interactive sessions in which you will learn about the organization to which you are applying and how to navigate their website. To benefit fully from attending these workshops, become familiar with the organization’s website, the options available, and the documents required. The workshop attendees must bring a hard copy of their resume, in the required format, to the workshop where resumes will be peer-reviewed. You are welcome to attend multiple if you intend to apply to various opportunities.

 

During the Internship Workshops, you will  

  • Learn how to navigate the internship website
  • Give and receive peer feedback on your resume
  • Understand the difference between a letter of recommendations and references
  • Discuss how to request letters of recommendation (as applicable)
  • Review the elements of a quality cover letter (as applicable)
  • Share ideas for how to respond to essay prompts (as applicable)
  • Review what to write in your Letter of Interest (as applicable)
