ILR Credit Internship Program
The ILR Credit Intern Experience
The ILR Credit Internship Program affords qualified ILR juniors and seniors the unique opportunity to gain significant professional experience while also receiving a full semester’s credit. Approved students are eligible to undertake internships in a wide-range of organizations from trade unions and large corporations, to government agencies, labor & employment law firms, and non-profits. In operation for nearly forty years, the ILR Credit Internship Program is widely recognized in the United States as the most successful of its type. The program was created by the faculty of the ILR School to afford our advanced undergraduates, juniors and seniors, opportunities to enhance their understanding of the field of industrial and labor relations by working for a semester (approximately 14 weeks), in one of the professional careers it encompasses. Students intern across the U.S. and around the world. View student profiles for more information.

The schedule established requires that students interested in internships for Spring 2017 submit applications and make choices about internship sites of interest to them early in the semester. This process will leave the last half of the semester to complete the student-site matching process and the interviews and visits often necessary to finalize decisions regarding placements. Under School policy, intern applications cannot be referred to site sponsors until they have been approved. Students who miss the application deadline will fall behind in the process and may have to settle for whatever sites are still available.
Students who apply on schedule and select five sites will still be eligible to apply for any new internships offered after October 7th provided they have not already accepted an existing intern position. Announcements of new internship opportunities will be posted on the Internship Bulletin Board outside of 119 Ives Hall and on the Credit Internship Program internship website and on the Credit Internship Facebook website.
The Catherwood Library has put together several new options for library access for off-campus ILR credit interns. More information can be found here.
