Important Message Regarding Applying for Internships on “My Career Online”

This is a policy of the Office of Career Servicees & Internships in order to ensure that our students present themselves in the best possible manner to employers. If your resume and cover letter haven’t been approved, you will be blocked from applying to internships and receive the message “You do not qualify for this job.” Make sure to build in enough lead time to have your documents reviewed in order to meet application deadlines as students may not always be able to get an appointment before an impending deadline.
