Students can also search for career opportunities through the university's own job search site, Handshake. Handshake is the place for university students to search and apply for internships, co-ops, part-time and full-time jobs. It can also be used by employers to post opportunities and share upcoming career events.

Internships for Credit

The School of Computing also offers students the opportunity to receive course credit for internships. Enrolling for an internship is different from enrolling for a regular course, so be sure to discuss this option with an academic advisor.
