What is the general process of applying for an internship through Project-ION?

To apply for an internship through Project-ION you must first create an account and set up a profile, which will require some pertinent demographic information including name, address and email address. You’ll also have the option of uploading your resume to Project-ION’s resume database, a tool employers can use to search for an intern. Once you’ve created an account you will have the ability to browse all of ION’s available internship positions. To apply to a Project-ION sponsored internship, you will have to upload the documents requested in the posting and submit them through the site. Project-ION will send your materials directly to the employer.

Why don't I have the option of applying directly to the employer anymore?

Unfortunately users will no longer be able to apply directly to Project-ION sponsored internship positions. Instead users will submit required information to ION, click the submit button, and ION will send the information to the employer. This method allows site administers to track important site usage data, a necessary component of site funding.
