Fordham Student Summer Interns

Getting Started

More than 81% of Fordham students graduate complete at least one internship

As a Fordham student, you have access to an engaged team of career advisors who work every day to:

  • Cultivate relationships with employers in NYC and beyond so that you can gain professional experience.
  • Help students perfect how they present on paper, on video, and on zoom!
  • Identify professional opportunities that will teach students new skills in growing industries.

The first step in getting started for this summer:

  1. Join Handshake.
  2. Through Handshake, set up an appointment with either Holly Young or Viviana Martinez to work on your resume and begin your internship search.

It's never too early to begin your search! We encourage you to start working with us this January to get your resume employer-ready!
