NOW IS THE TIME TO LOOK FOR A SPRING INTERNSHIP
By Sherrika Green
The Applied Study Program at UIS received a
$91,000 grant from the Illinois Cooperative Work Study Program
for 2004-2005 academic year. We are currently in the process of
posting job descriptions for spring semester placements.
These highly competitive placements are open to
all UIS degree-seeking undergraduates in good academic standing,
in any applicable major, who have not completed an Applied Study
Term. The student must be an Illinois resident. These
internships offer paid opportunities for 19 different
undergraduate majors. Applicable majors include: accountancy,
biology, business, chemistry, communications, computer science,
criminal justice, economics, English, history, legal studies,
liberal studies, math, political studies, psychology,
sociology/anthropology, and visual arts.
Detailed job descriptions are posted in the AST
office. November 12 is the DEADLINE to apply for these
internships. You might intern as a assistant program
coordinator; work on research in a lab or in an environmental
testing lab; work as an economic development associate; or be a
marketing associate. This is an excellent opportunity for
students to earn college credit doing an internship that pays $9
an hour. Most internships will begin January 10, when the
semester begins. Typically, students work 20 hours each week
for 16 weeks during the semester for 8 hours of credit. A
limited number of internships are for 4 credit hours.
Over 27 different state agencies, private
businesses, not-for-profit organizations, local government
agencies, and political organizations are offering internships.
Most are located in Springfield.
Come into the AST office (SAB 50 A) or call for
an appointment (206-6640) to see a counselor about these and
other paid and unpaid internship opportunities. The AST office
is open 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM Monday - Friday. Visit our web site
