Students majoring in political science can qualify for management and consulting careers in private for-profit and non-profit organizations; federal, state, and local government; law; journalism; public and international affairs; and teaching. Completion of academic studies at CMU, coupled with an internship, should help guide you through the career selection process
Both public and private sector job recruiters agree that students who have served an internship are at a distinct advantage over the competition.
- An internship demonstrates commitment and personal initiative.
- Interns bring valuable basic hands-on experience to their chosen profession.
- Interns are viewed as people who have tested a career path and enjoyed the experience. Accordingly, they are less likely to quit or be fired after a few months on the job.
- Many organizations recruit for permanent positions from their intern pool. Or they recommend promising interns for career positions with other organizations.
