Hire an Intern
The Internship Program, which also encompasses Cooperative Education, provides UTEP students an opportunity to build professional working relationships with employers and institutions. Students benefit by gaining work or volunteer experience in their fields of study, while employers build relationships with highly motivated students who may be tapped for future professional employment.
While the Program typically involves major-related activities such as internships and co-operative education (co-op), it also includes volunteer and service-learning opportunities, fellowships and practicum, and other similar activities. Internships are programs aimed at assisting students with applying their classroom learning to real-world applications. Employers can choose the program that best fits their needs.
Internship Program Participants:
- Participants must meet and maintain a minimum grade-point average of 2.0 or above for undergraduate students or a 3.0 or above for graduate students.
- Co-op employers may choose from two separate options, Parallel and Alternating.
- Parallel: The student is enrolled at the University during the semester while working. The employment is often done on a part-time basis.
- Alternating: The student engages in alternating periods of full-time work and enrollment.
Employers can identify UTEP students for internship and similar opportunities through job listings, on-campus interviews, or résumé referrals.
