Throughout your education, you may wish to participate in an internship. Penn State World Campus Career Services can facilitate the search for available positions. You can make an appointment with a career counselor on Nittany Lion Careers or contact our Career Services team via email at [email protected].
If you are looking for an internship you can complete remotely, the Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) provides unpaid internships that are completely virtual, offered through the Federal Government. VSFS internships begin in September and are completed in May of the following year. A wide range of projects and opportunities are available. You can apply in July each year for VSFS opportunities during the upcoming fall and spring semesters.
Our Career Services team can also help you identify other virtual internships.
Internships in Your Location
World Campus students often successfully complete internships within their geographic location. Our Career Services team members have expertise in helping students develop skills to locate internship opportunities in their region. Some opportunities to connect to employers are also available in Nittany Lion Careers.
