The NODA Internship Program matches orientation, transition, and retention (OTR) professionals and host institutions with energetic, dedicated students looking to expand their OTR experience and make lasting connections in the field.

NODA internships encompass a wide range of responsibilities and provide interns with transferable skills such as student staff supervision, diversity training and awareness, welcome week programs, parent and family programs, and program assessment. 


 How It Works

NODA's Internship Program is designed to facilitate the matching of motivated, quality students with challenging, exciting OTR positions at NODA member institutions across the U.S. and Canada.

This is accomplished by bringing together these candidates and hosts through our online tool, which fosters:

  • centralized communication
  • manage applications
  • schedule interviews
  • confirm candidate / internship matches

Starting in November, hosts and NODA graduate student members who have paid the internship program fee have access to this online tool to build profiles. These profiles act as internship listings for the hosts and resumes for the candidates. In December, the application process begins!



 Past Host & Intern Testimonials

"It's always hard to point to direct personal growth, but I can confidently say that I grew as a professional in my assessment skills, my emotional intelligence, my crisis management, and my event planning skills. This internship touched on so many areas that I feel like I could be reflecting for 10 years before I realize all I've gained."

- NODA Intern

"I loved this experience. If I wasn't graduating next Spring, I would do it again!"

- NODA Intern


"This was the best graduate experience that I have had so far! The support, friendliness, and experiences my supervisors gave me were outstanding. I learned and grew so much this summer."

- NODA Intern

"Give it a try! I've found that the NODA Internship Program is mutually beneficial for the students and the institutions."
