Fall/Spring Semester Internship Program

The Career Center has developed internships with a wide variety of organizations within the Greater Williamsburg area.  We are able to offer internships in the Fall and Spring semesters in a wide variety of fields.   These internships typically require 7 - 10 hours per week of your time. These afford you a great opportunity to:

  1. Explore career options
  2. Build career-specific skills
  3. Enhance your resume
  4. Increase your personal network of professional acquaintances

You must participate in a brief online orientation module before being able to participate in the Fall/Spring Program. If you attended an orientation in the past, you don't need to do so again.

To see current Tribe in Action Fall/Spring Opportunities and apply for consideration, log in to Tribe Careers. See detailed instructions below:

You will be able to attach documents such as your Resume and Cover Letter (if requested) to your application after you click the Apply button.

4.  Wait to hear from the Employer

The employer will contact you directly if he or she is interested in interviewing you. The employer will follow up after the interview if he or she is interested in extending an offer.

5.  Accepting an Offer

Once you accept an offer for an internship, contact all the other employers you applied to in order to let them know you are withdrawing your application. Then, work with your internship supervisor to complete the Internship Learning Agreement, and return it to Sean Schofield at the Cohen Career Center.
