Internships and Co-ops

Why is an internship important?

Gain hands-on, day-to-day skills in the real-world

An internship/co-op experience is a requirement of the occupational safety and health program at Murray State. As an intern, you gain hands-on, day-to-day skills in a real-world environment. You can participate in multiple internship/co-op experiences throughout your college career, making you more competitive in the job market.

How do I secure an internship?

You receive one-on-one assistance in participating in mock interviews and developing professional resumes. Resumes are compiled by the department and sent to hundreds of companies. Companies, in turn, conduct information sessions and interview you within the department to fill their internship and full-time positions.
