Students preparing for Mock Interview Day

The Office of Internships & Career Services (ICS) is here to help guide you on your path to a meaningful career. We do this through individual advising, workshops and events, Career Connect Day, our Career Management elective (INT120), and the Internship Program.

Internship Program: Completing at least one internship is a graduation requirement for accounting, finance, management and marketing majors (it is an elective option for psychology majors). Click here to learn more about the internship program.

On-Campus Jobs & Federal Work Study: Our office also assists students with securing on-campus jobs and helping eligible students apply their Federal Work Study award to off-campus jobs. Please download our one-sheet for more information on both.

Help Us Plan Our Next Event: Our team is eager to collaborate with student clubs and campus organizations. If you have an idea, need help securing a speaker, or simply want to brainstorm, complete this brief form and we’ll be in touch with you very soon!

We encourage you to discover and take advantage of all that ICS has to offer, including these resources:
