Hire an Intern
The Internship Program (which also encompasses co-operative education) provides UTEP students an opportunity to build professional working relationships with employers, organizations, and institutions. Students who intern gain hands-on experience through real-world application in their fields of study. As an employer, hiring an intern allows you to connect with highly motivated students, foster growth, and prepare them for future professional employment. In addition, if you are considering growing your workforce, it allows you to evaluate possible candidates.
The University Career Center's internship program recognizes major-related activities, such as internships and co-operative education (co-op), fellowships, practicums and part/full-time jobs. These high-impact activities allow students to apply classroom learning to real-world applications while developing an understanding of the field and the skill set needed for the profession. Program participants must meet and maintain a minimum grade-point average to participate (2.0 or above for undergraduate students or a 3.0 or above for graduate students).
The University Career Center supports employers through the internship process by connecting them with students through career fairs, job posting, networking events, on-campus interviews, or résumé referrals. We recognize that many employers need support to manage or even begin their internship efforts. The Internship Program team is available to provide that support through phone calls, email, and virtual appointments via Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Feel free to contact us, we are happy to help.
