PSIP Pivots to Virtual Internships for 51st Cohort

U-M’s Public Service Intern Program (PSIP) celebrated its 5Oth year in 2019 and, unbelievably, the students in the 51st cohort of PSIP have experienced a program year like no other. Through it all, they have been extremely impressive, working hard on their internship searches and engaging in all components of the intern program.  Like others across the country, many students had their initial plans in DC canceled. Our PSIP students persisted and applied for remote internships.

One-to-One Career Advising

Setting aside time to figure out your next steps can be hard when you have class, projects, work, and other time commitments.

But we've heard over and over again that students really wish they would have set aside time to talk to one of our career coaches so that they would have known what to do sooner.

That's why we made phone and video-chat appointments available, in addition to face-to-face appointments.
