Interning in the North Country

Internship: A professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work related to a student's field of study or career interest.

Employers get the benefit of additional staff while students gain invaluable professional experiences outside the classroom and gain exposure to a variety of different career opportunities.

Interested in filling an internship position within your own organization?  Northern NY is home to well-known higher education organizations, each with their own unique pool of talented individuals.

SUNY Plattsburgh's Career Development Center makes it easy for employers to connect with potential interns. Students and recent alumni look for internships and jobs in the college's career portal, Handshake. Employers who are hiring are encouraged to post their opportunities in Handshake, and can register at this link: Join Handshake. Once approved (typically within 24 hours), employers are able to post their openings and can specify skills and attributes they are seeking for each position.

The staff at the Career Development Center is available to help employers with this process as needed. Upcoming recruiting opportunities at the college include a Part-time Job Fest on September 1st, a fall Internship & Career Fair on October 20th, and a spring Internship & Career Fair on March 30th. For more details and to be included on an invitation list for these events, please email Tobi Hay, Director of the Career Development Center, at tobi.hay@plattsburgh.edu.

Get in touch with the career services center to post your position and get matched with a great fit for your organization.
