Internships + Career Planning

An internship does more than jumpstart your resume. In a summer or a semester, it’ll open doors to the new worlds you’re discovering at Bryant.

Internships

More than 90 percent of Bryant graduates have completed at least one internship. They’re energized by the chance to try a range of career environments, get hands-on experience and network with established professionals in their chosen field.

Our Amica Center for Career Education, considered one of the nation’s best by Princeton Review, will pair you with a company that aligns with your career goals, whether or not you’re seeking academic credit. Faculty can also help guide you toward a productive for-credit internship experience. And many students elect to combine their internship experience with study abroad.

Your internship might be for credit or no-credit, paid or unpaid. And if you choose to pursue an unpaid or low-paying summer internship, you might qualify for a Summer Internship Fellowship.

Whether you choose a Fortune 500 company or a world-class museum, you'll gain matchless opportunities and connections that'll help you toward your next big move.


Career Planning

It can sometimes seem overwhelming to choose a career path at this stage of your life. That's why we've created a campus culture of strong mentoring, career exploration and planning.

Starting your first year, we'll work with you to create a Four-Year Plan. You’ll meet with one of our career coaches and, over four years, steadily clear the path to where you want to be.

Our resources include, but are not limited to:

  • The online Bryant Career Connection (BCC), where you can schedule appointments with a career coach, search for internships and service opportunities, and review and RSVP for employer and career events
  • Career assessments to clarify your skills, interests and values
  • Career Planning Seminars
  • The Shadow Program, which matches you for a day on the job with an alum
  • Assistance with resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn
  • Career fairs with more than 100 potential employers
  • Mock interviews, so the real thing will be a breeze
  • Personalized search plans for internships, jobs and graduate schools
  • The Bryant Alumni Career Link, connecting you with thousands of accomplished graduates

Our Washington, D.C., Program

Get a unique point of view interning in the seat of our nation's capital. The Washington Center is a full-time program we offer in Washington, D.C., during the fall, spring, or summer. The program includes internship placement, weekly seminars, one evening course and housing.

Organizations you might work with include the White House, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Opera House, law offices and lobbying firms. When you’re not at work, take advantage of your time in our nation's capital to pay respects to the monuments and memorials, stroll through the Smithsonian or hop the Metro to explore the city.
