"We have appreciated having an NCSU English Department intern this semester at the United Arts Council. She has picked up the slack we have here in attempting to do without an information officer or publicity person—writing numerous press releases and creating copy for our annual report. These have all been well executed. We have found her to be well-trained and polished, ably representing the department’s training and her university. Thank you so much for giving us the chance to host one of your students." Eleanor Oakley, President/CEO United Arts Council, of Raleigh and Wake County
Employers from all over the Triangle area participate in the program, and new ones are added regularly.
Students who enroll in the internship program offer a variety of experiences and skills to participating employers. See the list of participating majors and minors to get an idea of the interests and abilities of students. Students must meet certain GPA requirements, provide faculty recommendations, and submit a resume and writing samples for review prior to being accepted into the program.
To request an intern or to forward information regarding an internship opportunity, please send an e-mail to the internship coordinator (EnglishInternship@ncsu.edu) or call at (919) 515-4117. Employers are encouraged to post any internship positions on the NC State University Career Center job and internship database. There is no cost to set up an account and post openings to the database, which is accessible to all NCSU students.
Help a student with financial constraints gain valuable work experience by supporting the English Department Interns' Scholarship. Each year, many students are unable to participate in an internship because they cannot affort to work without pay. The Interns' Scholarship provides $750 per semester to qualified students. Give a gift to the fund, or make a pledge, by cash, check or credit card.
Your financial support of the scholarship fund helps the community as well as students, with scholarship recipients working for free at not-for-profit organizations. We appreciate and recognize our donors' support.
