Where can I find out about jobs and internship listings?
Quinnipiac has its own online system of job and internship listings called QU Career Connections, an extensive and continuously growing online job and internship database. This resource is for current students and recent alumni only.
Can students conduct an internship for credit?
Yes, all students are encouraged to conduct an internship for credit following their sophomore year. The student works closely with a faculty member to oversee their educational internship experience. More details are available on MyQ, the University's internal portal (login and password required).
Do I have to conduct an internship?
Although it is not required to conduct an internship across all majors (only in biomedical marketing and computer information systems), students are strongly encourage to conduct as many internships as possible so that they can get a sense of what they truly enjoying doing and what culture is the best fit for them.
