Mathematics Internships

Internships are short-term positions with public and private employers that give you practical work experience while you're still in school. You can use an internship to explore a profession, to build your resume, and to earn money or credit (see MATH 185).

In some industries, it's almost impossible to get hired full-time without first completing an internship. And many internships turn into full-time jobs after graduation, since employers are more likely to hire someone they already know well. Recent graduates from our department have held internships in banking, insurance, and finance, and at government labs and agencies.

To land a good internship and spare yourself stress, start early. For a summer position, you can prepare a well-edited resume and begin identifying potential employers in late fall or January.

To find an internship, look at the websites of companies or government agencies you'd like to work for. You can also research internships and get resume help through Hofstra's Career Hub.
