INTERNSHIPS
An internship is a career-related work experience generally lasting one semester in the fall spring or summer.  They should be a monitored learning experience for the student, with responsibilities appropriate to the student’s educational level and related to their field of study. In many cases they are unpaid, with students earning academic credit for work performed.

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION (Co-ops)
A Co-op is a paid internship which provides students with a structured and progressive work experience. Employers gain qualified and motivated temporary employees for short term projects or longer term work. Students gain valuable career-related work experience to enhance their marketability in a challenging economy. Many students look to complete Co-op experiences over the summer, though some students choose to alternate employment with academic semesters at Eastern.  Contact the Center for Internships and Career Development at (860) 465-4559 for more information
