ITAP interns are encouraged to expand on their ITAP experience by participating in an off-campus IT-related internship during their DePauw career.
While off-campus ITAP internships are not a requirement, interns are strongly encouraged to explore their options from the start. These experiences can be part or full-time, paid or unpaid. Internships can take place during Winter Term, May Term, the summer, or even during a semester in conjunction with an academic component.
These experiences help students to:
• Determine if a career is a good fit, or explore a specific field of interest
• Obtain practical experience to enhance a resume and improve skills
• Supplement theoretical learning with practical applications
• Develop a network of professionals in a student's field of interest
Off-campus internships often require long-term planning, which will help ITAP students best determine how one or more off-campus internships fit into their academic and career plans.
Students interested in exploring or planning IT-related internship opportunities can find useful information through the Hubbard Center of Student Engagement and should schedule an appointment with the Assistant Director of ITAP, Brandy Richmond, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (765) 658-4718.
