Chatham International Internship

Blend your classroom learning with real world experience for the best career preparation.  

Qualified students are invited to follow their one or two terms through the Chatham Semester with professional experience as a full-time intern (normally 40 hours per week).

This is a one-year program. The first term is academic study and the second term is an internship (academic training).

Students participating in the Chatham International Internship will take a Career Preparation course during the first term that will teach them how to write an American-style resume and cover letter.

The course will also cover:

  • Interviewing Techniques
  • Networking
  • Developing a Web Presence
  • Writing a Professional Statement
  • Managing Conflict
  • Making Ethical Decisions

During the internship second term students will take a course that meets once per week in which they will receive support from Career Development and their faculty advisor.

During this course, students will:

  • Reflect upon and engage in deeper discussion about their internship experience
  • Explore how to deal with unexpected situations and solve problems
  • Examine motivation and independence

Throughout the internship, advisors and supervisors provide feedback so that the student not only has the experience, but also understands the internship's meaning in relation to their career and professional growth.
