Test your knowledge in the real world.
Internships allow you to put your learning into practice, open your mind to new possibilities, and expand your understanding of the world around you. Through our Life Design Lab, you’ll have access to valuable services, including networking events, résumé workshops, and mock interviews, so you’re ready to pursue your goals. Employers like Amazon, Malala Fund, Google, NBC Universal, and Microsoft routinely seek out Hopkins students for their unique preparation and perspective.
98% Students With Pre-Professional Experience
“The main lesson I’ve learned while interning is that my strange combination of skills is marketable. It’s possible to become gainfully employed as a Writing Seminars and Mathematics double major! It’s possible for me to engage both sides of my brain in my daily life.”
