>>>First-time users: Puget Sound students are pre-registered in the InternshipLink databases. For instant access, bypass the "Register" button at the login screen and follow the "Initial Login Instructions" below.

Through InternshipLink, students have access to two databases of internship* listings: Nationwide Internships Consortium (NIC) and the Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN). *LACN also features entry-level jobs!

With InternshipLink, Puget Sound students can:

  • Access thousands of regional and national internship opportunities.
  • Save your favorite searches and receive alerts of new postings with Saved Searches.
  • In some cases you can apply online.

The two databases that you access through InternshipLink (NIC and LACN) have slightly different layouts, philosophies, and geographic ranges. Have questions? CES can offer you a guided tour, and provide tips about how to conduct the most effective search for your specific interests.

Privacy Notice: Current students' email addresses have been uploaded to the system to make your access easier. Information you add to your profile is accessible only by NIC/LACN administrators at Puget Sound and its partner institutions and will not be used for any purposes other than those related to managing access.

You may receive occasional system messages (e.g., asking you to confirm your email address to ensure secure access) but no information will be shared with any other outside parties. Also know that we will never ask for your password. If in doubt, contact CES.

As always, students are encouraged to use caution when uploading documents containing personally identifying information (resumes, cover letter, transcript information, list of references, etc.) into this or any other job/internship search database.

Have questions, or want a guided tour of the resources? Drop by CES in Howarth 101 for a demonstration.
