The Gallaudet Career Center offers career development services to students preparing them for internships related to their majors. Approximately 80% of recent graduates reported completing at least one internship before leaving Gallaudet. In addition, 80% of those having internships said the experience helped prepare them for future employment in the real world.
Before a Gallaudet student begins to look for an internship, a decision should be made whether the intern would like to complete an internship for credit or noncredit, paid or unpaid. Once that has been determined, the process of finding an internship is the same as finding a job:
Once an internship has been obtained, the student must complete an internship learning agreement form. Students should meet with their Career Consultant to obtain the learning agreement form. The form must be filled out completely and correctly and all necessary signatures obtained before submitting the agreement to the Career Center for final approval. Students can also obtain information from their Career Consultant about applying for stipend assistance if applicable. Evaluations will be completed by the student and the site supervisor at conclusion of the internship.
The Pathways Program:
The Pathways Program provides current students and recent graduates with a clear path to meaningful training and career development opportunities through federal internship and careers. The program includes an Internship Program, Recent Graduate Program and the Presidential Management Fellows Program. As a student or recent graduate, you can begin your career in the Federal government by choosing the path that that is best for you:

The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) is a federal program that is managed by the US Department of Labor. The program's objective is to connect government agencies and private companies with college students and recent graduates with disabilities for internship and part-time/full-time job opportunities. The recruitment cycle, which includes online registration, application and video interview, begins each year in late August. Please check the Bison CareerLink in early fall for updates regarding the program. Information will also be posted on Gallaudet's Daily Digest.
