Employers Value Internships from HBCU Students!
Updated for 2013! These organizations are accepting internship applications and HBCU students should be jumping on board. Here are some tips as you explore this list of internships:
1. Internships are not listed in any particular order to encourage students to look at ALL of them.
2. Don't rule out an organization just because you have never heard about them.
3. Don't assume that the company name indicates which majors they recruit.
4. If you like one particular company, research internship opportunities with competitors as well.
5. Make a good impression and get your resume critiqued by a career or internship professional on your college campus OR submit it to us for a free critique using the ASK Us feature.
