Cardinal Internships
Cardinal Internships are offered by Wesleyan alumni, parents and employers who have a particular interest in Wesleyan students and welcome their applications. Posted throughout the year, these internships represent a wide range of fields and industries. In most cases, they are paid, occur over the summer, and do not require US work authorization.

All Cardinal Internships are posted on Handshake with full job descriptions and application instructions. They are publicized in the Gordon Career Center’s bi-weekly email newsletter. Students are also encouraged to check Handshake directly for new cardinal internships on a regular basis.
