There are a lot of internships available on campus that don’t come directly to the Director of Internships for the English Department, but that nonetheless provide opportunities for English department majors to get relevant professional experience. We post as many of these as we find on the Internships page, but some other sources for finding out about internship opportunities include
- I-Link, the database of job and internship opportunities maintained by the University of Illinois Career Center.
- This list of regional and national internships, which LAS regularly updates.
- The Virtual Job Board maintained by the Office of Student Financial Aid, which is mostly a resource for part-time jobs but sometimes has internship postings.
A number of internships specifically available to Department of English majors have deadlines Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 5pm (the day after this holiday weekend): a number of academic and literary journals (American Literary History, Configurations, the Journal of English and Germanic Philology, the Medieval Globe, Ninth Letter), the Odyssey Project, Smile Politely, and the College of Education.
