INTERNSHIPS

Summer on the Cuyahoga connects talented students to paid internships in a variety of fields.

Internships

New internship opportunities will continue to be added to the website through mid-April, and students may apply to positions at any time. Given the popularity of the internships, students are encouraged to apply for positions as soon as they become available. Employers hire interns according to their schedules; they will review the applications as they are submitted, and interns can checks the status of their applications online. As positions are filled, they will be removed from viewing on the website. The application process will run until April or until all positions are filled.

Applications will be accepted from current sophomores, juniors and seniors. Current first year students are not eligible for positions offered through Summer on the Cuyahoga.

As you view the jobs, the categories should help you prioritize your search, but please remember that some employers’ job postings may cut across different functions. For example, one company may have multiple positions in a variety of areas, such as an HR Intern (Human Resources Category), Database Management Intern (Information Technology Category), and an Accounting Intern (Finance & Accounting Category).

You may apply to as many positions as you wish, but keep in mind that you are applying directly to the employer, not to the program. While you will be able to save your application information in the password-protected account that you create, you should tailor each application to what the employer requests.

You will need to REGISTER FOR A NEW ACCOUNT or SIGN-IN if you’ve already registered.
