Internships and Careers

The best path to your chosen career starts with an internship. As an NSU Honors student, you're strongly encouraged to pursue internships in your field during your undergraduate years. During your first year on campus, start talking with your professors in your discipline about internship opportunities. Be sure to submit a resume and cover letter when you apply for internships, even if a cover letter is not required.

 

Take advantage of the NSU Career Service Center to learn how to write a resume.

 

Talk with the director of the NSU Honors Program, Dr. Erin H. Fouberg, for advice on writing cover letters.
