UAA Career Services Center Internship Program

Thank you for your interest in the UAA Career Services Center Internship Program. We strive to challenge students to take their learning with them as they leave the classroom and enter the workforce. These unique opportunities eliminate the distance between academia and the business world, allowing students, employers, and faculty alike to stay up to date with current trends and practices and their application in a real world setting.

Student benefits for doing an internship:
