Among the many things we do, we help students get career-relevant experience. Some opportunities on campus that have recently come our way:
- Cargill Communications and Market Research Internship, U of Illinois Research Park (yes, you can have a “business” career with a humanities majors — internships like this one are a great way to get started, and yes, yours is a “related major.”)
- News Writer Intern, LAS Office of Communications (media, journalism, and content development are all paths that draw on the excellent writing and research skills that get developed in humanities programs).
- ATLAS Internships (currently accepting applications for Spring 2021) — these internships are a great way to explore the many ways your humanities skills connect to the tech world. No tech knowledge required!
- Editorial Internship, American Literary History (research and paid employment with units within the University of Illinois can give you experience that is relevant beyond academia)
- Advancement Intern, Gies College of Business (must be logged into Handshake to see this one; get experience doing research and analysis for a nonprofit organization, another career path for humanities majors).
- CS+philosophy/linguistics (and anyone else interested!) check out the Research Park Block Party on September 2, 5 – 6:30. Learn more about the research and development happening there and find out if there are projects you’d like to be part of.
There’s more. There are also many ways to explore and get experience that aren’t part-time jobs or internships. Read our emails, check out our website, send us your questions, come to our programs and workshops (search “HPRC” in Events on Handshake or check the calendar on our website).
