Career Services helps prepare students for internship, employment, and post-graduate opportunities through individual consultation and by promoting opportunities.  We prepare students to enter businesses, community organizations and schools and to engage in hands-on learning experiences. 

Paul Quinn College provides the opportunity for eligible students to earn credit toward degree completion via internship experiences.  Even if academic credit is not needed, the internship experience is invaluable to the development of students as servant leaders and as emerging professionals in their chosen fields. 

Quinnites have interned for companies and organizations such as:

  • General Electric
  • Hunt Oil*
  • INROADS
  • Perkins Management*
  • St. Philips School and Community Center*
  • Americorp
  • Uplift Charter Schools
  • Amegy Bank
  • Big Thought
  • KIPP TRUTH Academy
  • UT-Southwestern
  • Teach for America
  • Achieve PR
  • City of DeSoto
  • City of Dallas

*Internship experiences which resulted in job offers

For more information on identifying and applying for an internship please contact the Office of Academic Affairs.   Keep in mind that all internships designated for academic credit MUST be approved as credit earning PRIOR to the beginning of the internship.

Submit your résumé!
Are you résumé ready?  Businesses and organizations contact Paul Quinn College on a regular basis to recruit students for employment, internship, and volunteer opportunities.  Prepare your résumé and general cover letter and email it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Your submission will be reviewed to ensure you are indeed résumé ready. 

As requests for students are received, for on and off campus experiences, your résumé will be reviewed for the best fit.  If you are contacted for an interview be sure to make updates to your résumé and cover letter so you specifically address the position for which you are being considered.  Always have an extra updated résumé ready for the interview.

If you need assistance with your résumé, visit Student Support Services in the Student Union Building.  Also, look out for coming workshops on résumé building and interview skills.
