Explore Internships



Internships and co-ops provide students with experience that is needed to get a job in today's competitive job market. Many companies and organizations seek candidates who have some type of internship, co-op or related summer work experience. This helps students develop career objectives and increase their motivation to perform well in school. Experience as an intern or summer employee will help students start networking early and build relationships that can result in hiring opportunities later. Many programs at APSU offer internship courses, where you can receive credit for completing an internship. If you do not know where to get started in preparing for, finding, or understanding requirements for an internship, please schedule an Internship Search Appointment with a Career Services advisor.

'18 Marketing; Intern with the Nashville Soccer Club

William Kersten
'19 Computer Science; Intern with Legendary Supply Chain

The biggest thing I learned from the experience is to not let perfect get in the way of great, and not let great get in the way of good enough. I would recommend for other APSU students to pursue internships because they really do teach you things that you can't learn in the classroom. You can only learn for yourself when you're working on projects.
