Employers are encouraged to follow up with applicants, but if you do not hear from them, you may wish to directly contact the person listed on the Job Description. Employers are encouraged to update your application status on the website. If an employer chooses to interview you, you will be contacted to arrange a time for an interview. If an employer chooses to offer you a position, they will do so via the Commitment Letter. You are expected to respond to the Employer's offer of an internship within two business days.


New internship opportunities will continue to be added to the website through the month of March and students may apply to positions at any time. Given the popularity of the internships, students are encouraged to apply for positions as soon as they become available. Employers will review the applications submitted and notify applicants by e-mail of their status. As positions are filled, they will be removed from viewing on the website. The application process will run until April or until all positions are filled.

Applications will be accepted from current sophomores, juniors and seniors. Current first year students are not eligible for positions offered through Summer on the Cuyahoga.

As you view the jobs, the categories should help you prioritize your search, but please remember that some employers’ job postings may cut across different functions. For example, one company may post internships for an HR intern (Human Resources Category); Database Management Intern (Information Technology Category); and an Accounting Intern (Finance & Accounting Category).

You may apply to as many positions as you wish, but keep in mind that you are applying directly to the employer, not to the program. While you will be able to save your application information in the password-protected account that you create, you should tailor each application to what the employer requests.
