Internships at AACC welcome the opportunity to work with students and employers who seek to connect and explore internship options. We work to matchup skills and talents of AACC students to support and grow an organization.

What is an internship?

An internship is an on-the-job work experience related to a student’s major that includes an employer mentor and a faculty advisor. The internship experience has a start date and an end date. An internship can be taken for credit or done independently without credit.

Internships are an integral part of the learning, exploration and professional growth process for our students. The most important take away about doing an internship is for the student to get experience.

From August 2019 through June 2020, 284 AACC students participated in credit-based internships.

Our students want a work experience that relates to their area of study and employers want to connect with the AACC community to provide internships. Often, you get stuck with the idea of, “What’s my first step?” and “What do I do after that?” The Sarbanes Center for Career and Civic Engagement can help. We help students engage with employers while supporting businesses to meet their work needs. Facilitating this process and connecting with our community partners is our priority.

Let us help you explore your options. 


Before You Get Started

Before searching for an internship, you need to have an idea of the experience you want to gain. You also need a résumé documenting the education and experience you already have.

What do you need?

I know the internship experience I want and my résumé is ready. How do I begin my search?

You can begin your search by registering on the College Central Network (CCN), AACC’s searchable database. Register, upload your résumé for employers to see, and then start reviewing internship postings from employers. 

I want an internship but I’m not sure what type of position I should pursue or how to begin my search.

Schedule an appointment with AACC’s internship coordinator to explore options. Send an email to internships@aacc.edu.

I need a résumé.

Visit Employment Services for guides and workshops that will help you develop your résumé, cover letter and interview techniques. Use these templates to begin documenting your education and experience:

I have a résumé, but it needs to be reviewed.

We’re happy to give you feedback on your résumé. Contact AACC’s internship coordinator at internships@aacc.edu.

I would like to get credit for my internship experience.

Before you start your internship, register for the internship course number 275 in your area of study. Note the following:

  • Some internship courses have prerequisites or require the approval of the faculty advisor, so check your course listing in the college catalog for details.
  • For questions regarding whether an internship exists within your academic program, qualifies as an elective course in your major or transfers to your four-year school of choice, check with an advisor with AACC’s Academic and Transfer Advising. Log in to MyAACC and, in the self-services area, select Advising Appointments to schedule an appointment, or call 410-777-2307 for assistance.
  • For areas of study without a 275 internship course, students can register for IEX-275. Before registering, contact the internship coordinator for details.

I would like additional resources for students.
