The Washington and Lee University Library subscribes to a commercial service called Internships-USA, which provides listings of over 2,800 organizations offering internships and summer jobs for students. This database is password-protected, so a W&L user has to navigate through a series of screens to get into the database.
These listings are organized into about 15 subject-oriented collections, which also are published as books. The new Fall 2012 updates to these collections include the following:
- Internships in International Affairs
- Women’s Rights Internships
- Sports Internship Book
- Museum Internship Book
- Resort Internship and Seasonal Employment Guide
- Human Rights Internship Book
- History Internship Book
Other collections, such as Congressional Internship Book and Washington Internships In Law and Policy, are several months older, but still highly up-to-date.
Internships-USA is also part of a larger library guide, Internship Opportunities for W&L Students. Please note that this guide consists of 3 parts, including “Focus on Government and Politics” and “Focus on Journalism and Mass Media,” accessible from the tabs near the top of the page.
