Here are the steps to follow if you want to participate in a Winter Term internship AND receive credit for it. (Please note: Sophomores through Super Seniors who have been enrolled for Fall ’20 are eligible to earn Winter Term credit through an internship.)
STEP 1: Have your resume approved by a CCI Peer Career Advisor (PCA). No appointment necessary. See go/PCAs for days/times. Please note you must visit a PCA before Dec. 2 if your resume has not been previously approved; PCAs will be on break the week of Thanksgiving.
STEP 3: Find a Middlebury faculty member to serve as your academic sponsor. See FAQ at go/WTinternships for more info on academic sponsors. Because we are approaching the Dec. 2 deadline, students should work on this step even before they secure their internship.
STEP 4: Write your personal statement for your application for credit including 3 scholarly sources (see FAQ at go/WTinternships).
STEP 5: Download the Internship Agreement Form, read it, and initial all sections.
STEP 6: Create an Experience in Handshake – this is your application for credit. (Find it at go/Handshake>Career Center>Experiences>Create an Experience.) Select Winter Term Application for Credit/Funding and Winter Term 2021 and answer all questions marked with an asterisk. Immediately after submitting, attach your personal statement, your CCI-approved resume, and a signed Internship Agreement. Several funding grants are available for students on financial aid on a first-come, first-served basis (you will be asked questions about applying for funding as you complete the Funding application).
Internship credit is approved on a rolling basis up until December 2. Apply now!
Extensions of a day or two (but not more) may be allowed in rare circumstances out of your control (e.g. waiting for a firm internship offer, waiting for answer from faculty academic sponsor) only for students who contact Cheryl Whitney Lower or another CCI advisor before the December 2 deadline. Plan ahead!

Looking for a dedicated (but informal) mentor to help you explore longer-term goals, develop professional competencies, or explore what it means to navigate life at Middlebury?
Then join MiddMentors! With MiddMentors, you get to build a connection with an alumni mentor matched to your goals and objectives.
Our volunteer alumni mentors come from all over the globe, and represent an incredible diversity of experiences and backgrounds. Select from Cirque du Soleil aerialists, startup founders, volcanologists, corporate executives, award-winning writers, surgeons and psychologists, educators, human rights attorneys, coders, athletes, bankers and traders, veterinarians, Zen practitioners, to name a few…
After you’re paired with your mentor, you’ll embark on monthly conversations, guided by a flexible curriculum. Along the way, we support you with CCI advising appointments, resource pages, and email consults.
This is a developmental experience–not an evaluative one. In exchange for a small amount of prep, you get access to stellar advice and viewpoints from an alum who has already walked the path you’re hoping to take.
MiddCORE is a four-week, mentor-led program designed to help you launch your education, your passions, your purpose into the professional world. You will be consulting for L.L.Bean, solving real-life problems, and presenting your ideas to the Chief Marketing Officer. You will up-level your potential: Develop the confidence, skills, hands-on experience, and network you’ll need to make a positive impact—on the world and on your future.
