What is a NODA Internship?
The NODA Internship Program matches orientation, transition and retention professionals and host institutions with energetic, dedicated students looking to expand their orientation experience and connections. NODA Internships take place during the summer months. Currently, no academic year NODA internships are offered.
NODA internships are designed to:
  • Facilitate the matching of motivated, quality students with challenging, exciting orientation positions at NODA member institutions across U.S and Canada.
  • Encourage the renewal of our profession by creating employment opportunities for students interested in gaining orientation, transition, and retention experience.
Why a NODA Internship?
Interns gain valuable insight into varied methods of planning and implementing orientation, transition and retention programs. Interns have the opportunity to be involved in many different aspects of orientation, to expand their knowledge base and understanding of the diversity in programs, to develop an extensive support and mentor base, and to experience a variety of related areas. Through providing an internship experience, the host institution/program has the opportunity to gain from the perspective and background of an enthusiastic and fresh viewpoint on specific projects as well as in program implementation. The short term nature can also provide an economical way to increase the number of staff during a busy time of year, while increasing the ideas, the experience and the connections for your program.
