Internship 101 Zoom Workshop September 15th from 2:00-3:15 PM. Register on Eagle Career Link today!

(Click on "Events" > Workshops, Special Events > Find the event > RSVP)


Students are encouraged to engage in and/or pursue virtual options for internship experiences.  For students who are comfortable doing so, and are able to stay consistent with state and CDC guidelines, in-person opportunities are also available.  If you reside in a state other than Florida, be sure to follow your local, state, and national guidelines.  Please note the following:

  • To locate remote internship opportunities, log into Eagle Career Link and type “Remote” in the keyword search under the “Jobs & Internships” tab on the left.
  • Internship questions:  E-mail

 Students enrolled in internship courses will be asked to acknowledge the following Safety Participation Statement:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I acknowledge there are additional risks in participating in face-to-face experiential learning and that I have been made aware of these risks and have been provided remote alternatives to in-person experiences, and have chosen to voluntarily engage in face-to-face experiential learning instead of the remote learning opportunities.  In participating in the in-person experiential opportunity, I agree to comply with the facility’s directions and CDC guidelines regarding personal protective equipment and social distancing and assume the risks of engaging in this activity.



NOTE:  If the experiential learning options for your fall classes will remain virtual, this does not apply to you.
