What is a Pre-Professional Internship and Why Should I Care?

A pre-professional, or noncredit, internship is something you may do that is independent of your Marymount academic requirements and typically occurs before you complete your professional, or for-credit, Marymount internship.

Pre-professional internships are a great way to explore a career field, gain experience, learn about the inner workings of an office, choose a major, earn supplementary income, start networking, and build your resume! Even more, by engaging in a pre-professional internship, you will likely have a MUCH stronger sense of where you want to complete your required internship and know many more people who can help connect you with that opportunity.

The more you explore, the more informed and purposeful you can be when making career related decisions!

Whether you are doing your professional, for-credit Marymount internship this upcoming Spring or are simply looking for a pre-professional internship to gain experience next semester, NOW is the time to start searching!! Most companies and organizations begin their search for interns 3 months prior to when they would like to fill the position, so begin your research by meeting with a career coach TODAY!
