St. Lawrence interns are dynamic, energetic individuals who can contribute a fresh perspective and provide temporary assistance with special projects. For employers, this represents a valuable opportunity to "try out" students as potential employees with little or no risk.
Because the academic year at St. Lawrence follows a traditional, two-semester calendar, Career Services suggests two different options for internships: January recess (approximately 3 to 4 weeks) and/or Summer (up to 12 weeks). You may also choose to design a program option that complements your organization's schedule.
Compensation is at the discretion of the sponsoring organization. In an ideal world, all interns would be paid yet it is not a requirement for sponsoring organizations. For more information regarding the issue of paid/unpaid internships, we recommend employers consult the regulations provided by the US Department of Labor.
To post an internship, complete an Internship Form. You may also contact Katrina Johnson (Katrina@StLawU.edu), Associate Director for Internship Development, or call 315-229-5906.
Once we receive your internship description our staff will begin publicizing your opportunity to the campus community. Interested students will contact you directly or we can establish a more formal Resume Referral and collect application materials for you. Additionally, to arrange on-campus interviews, contact Career Services.
