Employers are posting internship opportunities at your school through Purple Briefcase. You can search internships by many categories (industry, type, etc.) as well as do keyword searching on company name, city, and state.
As you review internship opportunities, you can click apply. There are typically two ways to apply (and this is set by the employer when they publish the position):
- The internship will open up a link to attach your resume, cover letter, and send a quick email note to the employer.
- The internship will open up a new web page with an online ability to apply directly at that employer's website.
Note, if your school has set a requirement that all user's resumes are approved by the Career Services Center before you can apply, you will not have the ability to apply without an approved resume. Reach out to your Career Services Center directly if your resume has not been approved yet and you are waiting to apply to opportunities.
From the smartphone app, you can click the star to favorite an internship to apply to at a later point from your computer. This is recommended so that you are online to apply. Your saved internships can be found in the My Activity tab in the my jobs section.
