Is it important my student to complete an internship?

We strongly recommend that students seek out multiple opportunities to develop transferable and career specific skills. These opportunities can include internships, part-time jobs, volunteering, undergraduate research, study abroad, leadership programs, and involvement in organizations at UWM and in the community.

A career advisor can help your student identify which opportunities would be most related to their career goals.

We encourage your student to also utilize Handhsake, our employment platform, to explore on and off campus internships and jobs.
