Hire an Intern

Internships may be the most-effective, cost-efficient tool for recruiting full-time hires. We can help you with both attracting interns and developing your program.

Department internship contacts serve as resources for students seeking internships and can answer questions regarding receiving academic credit for the experience. All internship opportunities should be posted by the employer on Handshake. Feel free to forward opportunities to the contacts below for promotion to students.
