We receive support from faculty, alumni, parents, and friends of Furman, as well as our dynamic local business community. In fact, a growing number of our connections are reaching out to students to talk about their work, give advice, and provide a link to internship opportunities.
If you're looking for an internship in a particular field or with a certain company, connect with our office. Networking with us and our connections can be a valuable resource that will help you learn more about a particular industry or internship.
Find an internship through a connection
When a recruiter, an alum, a parent, or a friend of Furman is specifically seeking a Furman student to fill their summer internship, we will announce it via email and post it on our internship database (available Sept.-Apr.). Visit our Furman Connections database.
Interested to know where Furman students/alums have worked? See our Internship Opportunities by Target City.
Also, alums are a great resource for giving you advice and information about their organization and field of work. You can find alums to connect with through the Furman University Alumni LinkedIn page. Search for alums with LinkedIn profiles by location and type of work or organization. (This requires that you set up at least a basic profile in LinkedIn).
