Middlebury College Students Seeking Winter Intern Opportunities

Middlebury College offers students the opportunity to participate in Winter Term Internships for credit every January.  Internships provide students with a valuable work experience tied to their academic, career, or personal interests and provides employers the opportunity to have a student with good research, writing, or other skills help advance an important initiative.  In an attempt to make internship experiences accessible to more students and promote more local internships, the college is reaching out to invite local businesses & organization to consider hosting a Winter Term intern this January.  This year, Winter Term runs from Monday, January 8 to Friday, February 2, 2018.  Winter Term internships for credit are for sophomores through seniors and must be unpaid. If you are interested in a Winter Term intern, please see the information below. 

Posting your opportunity:

  • Please visit our Employer Page and review the information. Then register for Handshake and post your internship on Handshake.
  • Include the words “Winter Term” in the title of your internship posting. 

This will let our students know you are actively seeking their candidacy for January 2018 and make your opportunity even more visible!

  • If your opportunity is only available to Middlebury students, please indicate this in the description: *Middlebury Only* and when prompted, select Middlebury College as the school where you want your position posted. 
  • Please post your opportunity as soon as possible but no later than November 3.

Students can receive credit for Winter Term Internships:

  • An early or mid-November application deadline date is suggested to give you time to interview & select a student before students are required to submit their applications for academic credit on November 30.
  • Students must complete a minimum of 25 hours/week (at least 100 hours total) over four weeks.
  • Students must have an on-site supervisor who will mentor/supervise them and provide a performance evaluation at the end of the experience.
