  • Questions to Ask When Internship Searching

  • When searching for an internship take time to reflect on your personal, academic, and professional goals. To start narrowing down your search ask yourself the following.

    Do I want to intern...

    • in the winter, spring, summer, or fall?
    • in Denver, abroad, or elsewhere in the US?
    • in the public, private, or non-profit sector?
    • and receive INTS credit for the internship?

    Once you have a general idea of what you are looking for and when, review the list of organizations INTS students have interned with in the past. Also take a look at the internships highlighted for INTS students in the Breaking Ground newsletter.  If you have any questions, or need assistance in your search, please contact our internship coordinator at
