Career services offices help navigate the changing landscape of summer internships.

Joanna Nesbit (April 30, 2020). Coronavirus is upending internships for college students. Here’s what to do if yours was cancelled.

Internships have become a very important component to launching a successful career, and summer is a prime time for students to land an internship that will move them toward their career goals. The coronavirus has eliminated, or significantly altered, this experience for many students. Career services offices like the ones at Vassar and Hamilton College are offering support, advice and additional resources to help students navigate this challenging new landscape.
