Student Internships

Employer Seeking Intern

In an effort to provide top-notch education, the College of Business and Computing desires to provide our qualified students outstanding internship opportunities by partnering with local businesses and on-campus positions. We thank you for your contribution to this endeavor.

Students should be provided a meaningful and memorable internship experience and are prepared to approximately 15 hours per week. Responsibilities should be challenging, stimulating, and provide the student with the opportunity to make a contribution to the company. An ideal arrangement would be assigning students a challenging project that aligns with the student's chosen major, such as developing or refining some sort of system, analytical tool, policies and procedures, a manual, or alternative methodology for the company. Opportunities to help management make decisions, research opportunities, solve problems, and provide important recommendations are most desirable. Employers are asked to work closely with our students by providing open communication, coaching, and open feedback on student performance. Students will be asked to prepare a written report for a faculty member at GSW and you will be asked to provide feedback to the College of Business and Computing as well.

Our intern selection procedure is as follows: A committee of faculty will choose 2 or 3 finalists for the company to interview or if the company so desires we will make a selection.

Do you want more information for interns?

Please email Dr. Robert Bennett, with information on internship duties proposed and intern qualifications needed to get started on filling your internship needs. We are currently partnering with many businesses in the region to ensure great internships for both the student and employer.

Internship Opportunities


Georgia Southwestern offers on-campus internship opportunities to students throughout our various departments that apply to all College of Business and Computing disciplines. Some internships include accounting, human resource assistance, web programming, videography, digital signage creation, and information technology support. 


Students have the ability to work with any local business for an internship opportunity upon approval. Past interns have worked with businesses such as TCI, Phoebe, Citizens Bank, City of Americus, the Chamber of Commerce, One Sumter, Magnolia Manor, Perry Brothers, AgGeorgia Farm Credit, and others. 

I have learned how to interconnect with my colleagues and how my internship helps me relate my studies to my future career. Gaining the opportunity to work with many caring and passionate professors has helped me develop more as a confident professional upon graduation.
