What is an Internship?
"An internship is a pre-professional work experience that provides students, recent graduates, and those seeking to change careers with the opportunity to gain experience in a particular field. For students, internships also supplement academic classes and, in some cases, earn college credit. For recent graduates and individuals considering a career change, an internship is a way to try a new job without making a permanent commitment. An internship is a way to test the waters in a variety of career fields, to gain "real-life" experiences, and a way to decide on--or opt out of--a certain vocation."

What is the Internship Challenge?
The Internship Challenge is a program designed to increase the number of experiential learning opportunities for Loyola undergraduate students and provide an opportunity for alumni and parents to give back to Loyola. The Internship Challenge is a collaboration of the Career Center, office of alumni relations, corporate & foundation relations, and parent relations.
