Career Counseling Internship

Career Counseling Internship

The Career Counseling Internships provide training and experience with university students seeking career, academic, and personal development, with an emphasis on individual counseling. Career Interns participate in the many career-related components of CAPS including one-on-one career counseling, workshops, outreach to the campus community, and the career resources library. In addition, interns may design or be involved in other programs which meet their unique training interests.

Career Interns will receive weekly individual and group supervision as well as regular trainings on relevant counseling topics. Supervision typically meets practicum for Marriage Family Therapy counseling programs.

The minimum time commitment for the Career Counseling Internship is 16 hours per week for one academic year (late August to late May). A typical time commitment for a Career Counseling Intern follows:

Individual Counseling 6 Hours
Group Counseling & Workshops 2 Hours
Career Resources Library 3 Hours
Supervision, Training, and Administrative Time 5 Hours
