  • Full-time
    • Full-time positions are positions with 30+ hours per week. For graduating seniors, the recruiting timeline for full-time positions will typically begin at the start of the Fall semester.
  • Internships
    • An internship is a temporary, full-time position intended to give undergraduate students experience in a particular field.
  • Externships
    • Externships are short, 1-2 day experiences designed to give undergraduate students a chance to learn more about a specific company and their opportunities, as well as a chance to network. Externships are typically intended for freshman or sophomore students who have not yet taken courses focusing on technical skills needed for the industry.
  • Micro-internship
    • Micro-internships are short-term, paid projects that can be completed at any time during the year. Micro-internships are a great way to add relevant experience to your resume. Due to the short-term nature of these projects, they are continuously being added to the micro-internships site, found here.
