Top Story

InternShop, the software-as-a-service platform that matches employers with prospective student interns, has a large concentration of SUNY students looking for summer opportunities in New York (particularly in/around Albany and New York City).

A partnership between The Business Council, SUNY and Accenture, InternShop takes the guesswork out of finding an intern. After filling out a brief job profile form, The Business Council will provide you with resumes and personal statements of students that would be a good fit for open internship positions.

The service is free to use for members, and there is no obligation to take on an intern by filling out and submitting the form.
