Internships, co-ops, and practicums are structured experiences that allow students to:

  • Apply classroom learning to a real-world environment
  • Learn information about a career field first-hand
  • Develop skills and gain confidence
  • Build their network and resume

Internships, co-ops, and practicums can be registered for course credit or 0-credit transcript notation with your department, college, or the Pomerantz Career Center. They may be part-time or full-time, can happen during any semester, and you can do more than one during your time at UI.

How to Get Involved

To prepare for an internship, co-op, or practicum, make sure you have a resume ready (and have some prior experience through volunteering, jobs, research or student groups).

To get started on finding and applying to an opportunity, make an appointment with a Career Advisor and check out these resources from the Pomerantz Career Center, Tippie College of Business, or Engineering Career Services.

Sign up for an advising appointment on MyUI today!

  1. Click on the “Advising Appointments” tile
  2. Click on the “New appointment with…” drop down menu.
  3. All undergraduates except Engineering will pick “Pomerantz Career Center.” Engineering students will pick “Engineering Career Center.”

Career Center staff are excited to help you search for and land a great opportunity.
