Become an Internship Site
Internships are a vital part of student career development and a highly valued component of the SoHE undergraduate curriculum. High-quality internships foster student learning by bringing theories and classroom content to life in real-world settings. In addition, internships give students an opportunity to explore careers related to their major, gain relevant experience in their field of interest, and develop a better understanding of what is expected in a workplace by performing the tasks of a working professional.
SoHE undergraduate students are required to participate in an internship for credit as part of their degree program. If your company or organization is interested in offering an internship related to any of the six SoHE majors, learn more about Establishing an Internship with SoHE. A SoHE Career Advisor would be happy to meet with you to talk more about your internship opportunity prior to posting in BuckyNet.

The best avenue for marketing your available jobs and internships is through BuckyNet, and we help broaden your reach even further by ensuring your postings get out in front of the right audience.

Additionally, you may wish to utilize the UW Student Job Center to promote vacant positions within your organization to students.
