Internships and Practicum Opportunities

To register for an internship, you must obtain SJC faculty approval before you start working. Submit your internship contract to your academic advisor.

Practicums only need approval between a student and an individual faculty member. Make sure you have given your faculty adviser your signed contract. They in turn will register you for credits this summer. 


Your work experience (internship) over the summer will ONLY be complete if you do the following:
  • Keep a log of your hours
  • Write a reflection paper at the end
  • Submit an Internship Evaluation Form by your work supervisor.
A complete guide to Internships and Practicums is available here.
Information on this page is designed to help you with your internship/practicum search and meeting all requirements to receive full credit for your internship employment. Even though an internship is not required for every SJC major or program, we highly encourage you to have an internship during your junior or senior year either for credit or for expanding your experience.

Why do an internship?
The after-college job market is significantly competitive and every year it becomes harder and harder to stand out. Internships allow for two main things:
  1. For you to learn the industry and put your foot in the door through actual job experience, networking with professionals, building your reputation, and potentially getting an entry-level job or at least developing connections for professional references.
  2. For potential employers to test if you fit the team, save resources on training you, and fill their entry-level positions with people they already know. 
Benefits of Internships
  • Gives you hands-on experience and expands your skills, including soft skills;
  • Allows you to apply your passions and affirm you are on the right career path;
  • Builds your personal and professional confidence;
  • Gives your resume a boost;
  • Offers professional networking opportunities;
  • Grants a good chance of being hired in. According to NACE, the full-time job offer rate is 70% and the acceptance rate is almost 80%.

The U.S. Department of State’s Pathways Internship Program includes both the Internship Experience Program (IEP) and the Internship Temporary Program (ITEP). Both programs are targeted toward U.S. citizens enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions from high school to graduate school and professional academic levels. Both programs provide students with opportunities to explore Federal careers while being paid for the work performed.

Internship Experience Program (IEP)

Interns in this program are appointed to non-temporary, excepted service appointments, expected to last the length of the academic program for which the intern is enrolled. IEP participants, while in the program, are eligible for noncompetitive promotions if they meet the developed qualification standards for the position. IEP interns are also eligible for federal employee benefits (e.g. life, health, and retirement). IEP participants are eligible for noncompetitive conversions to the competitive service within 120 days of program completion.

Internship Temporary Program (ITEP)

The temporary nature of the ITEP allows for interns to work during seasonal and holiday breaks in academic programs as well as year-round. Interns in this program are appointed to temporary appointments, not to exceed one year or their projected graduation date (whichever is shorter) and extensions may be made in one year increments. The positions to which the interns are appointed have no promotion potential, therefore, students must apply through USAJOBS to be considered for higher-graded positions. ITEP participants who are expected to work 130 hours per month or more for at least 90 days will be eligible to enroll in a health benefits plan. ITEP participants are not eligible for any other benefits until after conversion into the competitive service. ITEP participants are eligible for noncompetitive conversions to the competitive service within 120 days of completion of the Pathways Program.
