Need help finding an internship? We can help.
Hampden-Sydney College is ranked among The Princeton Review's top 25 best schools for internships. That's because H-SC fully supports its students who engage in experiential learning activities through internships, volunteerism, summer research, and job shadow opportunities. Internships allow you to acquire experience, paid or unpaid, in an occupation, profession, or pursuit of interest. What's more, they'll give you the opportunity to "try before you buy."
Students may receive academic credit for internships related to their academic fields of study. Such internships combine on-the-job experience with on-going course work and the production of a substantial research paper on a related issue.
The Ferguson Career Center uses the Handshake platform as a service to Hampden-Sydney students and alumni seeking employment opportunities. Let us help you find your next job or internship.

- Learn and hone the skills employers look for when recruiting for traditional internships and full-time positions
- Explore new industries and potential career paths without a major commitment
- Build relationships with employers by demonstrating your skills and abilities in substantive projects
- Quickly add great experiences to your resume while getting paid!
