There are many ways Bates students can obtain work experience and test various career options through programs such as:
Career Discovery in Practice: Short internships between winter semester and short term, sponsored by Bates Alumni in many different fields.
Ladd Internships: Paid summer internships for juniors with major corporations.
Summer jobs: A summer job is an excellent opportunity to test a particular field and find out whether you would be interested in pursuing a career in it after graduation.
The Career Development Center has up-to-date information on the various opportunities available.
Please note that the Economics Department does not grant academic credit for summer jobs or internships.
