Internship Options

Internship Programs / Online Posting Service

University of Rochester students are strongly encouraged to gain in depth field experience in areas related to their academic concentrations as part of the career planning process. Internships are an easy, cost-effective way to fill short-term needs with potential long-term employees. You get to “test drive” employees that have the knowledge and skills you need, while students receive a unique form of education that blends classroom training with practical work experience. Students who participate in internships are better equipped to make career decisions. University of Rochester students may pursue internships solely for experience or may seek academic credit. Coordinating the credit is the responsibility of the student and is typically arranged through a sponsoring professor and the College Center for Advising Services.

  2. If you are not already registered, simply create an account and we will process it within 1 business day. You can also enter your job posting as part of the registration process, and that will be approved at the same time as your account.
