Locating an Internship
Students are responsible for finding internships. Here are some sources that
can assist in this:
Students must choose internships in which
the employer provides the training and
guidance necessary for the student to perform the job. The CS department is
involved in the internship only to the extent of providing assistance in
locating an internship and in providing academic credit for the internship.
- Use contacts in your community. For example, parents or relatives may
work for companies that offer computer science internships.
- Check the
AfterCollege Career Page maintained by the
UMD Computer Science Department (requires registration).
of Local and Regional Company Websites and contact any company's
Director of Human Resources.
- Monitor your UMD email account for job-related messages circulated to
students. Note: you must be registered with
AfterCollege to receive these emails.
