Internships

Stand out above the rest

Are you looking for resume-boosting experiences and a chance to get involved in your chosen field? An internship is a fantastic way to test-drive a career or area of interest. UW-Eau Claire has created strong partnerships with business and industry, not just locally but regionally and in some cases, around the world.

Internships are a great way to get ahead. At Volume One, I took what I learned at UW-Eau Claire and applied it in the real world. It was a great way to advance my technical writing skills while getting to work with a great group of people.

UWEC brings employers to you

Over 200 employers come to campus every spring and fall for the Career Conference to find Blugolds for internships and professional jobs. Locally and nationally-known organizations come back each year because they know Blugolds have what it take. Stand out during your internship and it could turn into a job after you graduate! 

Look for internships and jobs year-round through our online Handshake portal. This unique resource features postings by employers who are specifically looking for Blugolds to fill positions.

As an intern, you get to make mistakes and learn from them. Internships add so much value to a student’s experience and can help you understand the concepts you’re learning in class better, too.
