Internships

Internship experiences are an essential component of your education.  An internship provides you with a chance to learn new skills, network with professionals in your field, apply coursework to a real-world work situation, and explore career options. While many factors impact success in the job search, internship experience will typically make you a more competitive candidate. 

Students interested in doing an internship should schedule an appointment with Denise Lorenz, the Community Engagement Coordinator.  To schedule an appointment, click on the "Book Now" icon on the Career Services homepage.

 Internships in Washington, D.C.  

Viterbo University has a partnership with The Washington Center (TWC), an independent, nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C. that provides challenging opportunities for students to work and learn for academic credit.  Viterbo students who apply and are accepted into The Washington Center Internship Program can register for 12 credits of internship in one semester at Viterbo (which will cover the program fees) and utilize any financial aid benefits to cover the housing fees.   TWC will find a semester-long professional internship in the Washington, D.C. area to match your interests.  In addition, you will also take an academic course and participate in their LEAD (Leadership, Engagement, Achievement & Development) Colloquium.

Nursing Majors

Nursing internships are not taken for credit and are not facilitated through the career services office. Nursing students can, however, participate in a for-credit internship experience in areas outside of nursing (for example, in your minor field of study).Junior nursing students looking for a nursing internship should plan on attending the Nursing Career Fair held every year in early November. A number of regional facilities hosting nursing internships attend that event to share information about their internship opportunities and application procedures.
