Purpose of
the Internship Program

The purpose of the Internship Program at the University of California, Riverside is to facilitate student learning opportunities outside the classroom. These experiences provide the opportunity to apply classroom theory to "real world" situations thus enhancing the students’ academic and career goals.
The partnerships developed between the employer, the university and the student have proven beneficial to all concerned. The program is a valuable source for completing special or temporary projects and potentially filling permanent positions. Our students are dedicated, bright and highly motivated. Many employers tell us that students bring new ideas and fresh insights to the workplace.

  • Interns are a great resource for one-time projects.
  • Interns provide completion of special projects and fill the gap during peak workloads.
  • Interns perform fundamental tasks freeing permanent employees to do more advanced or higher-priority work.
  • Interns are great public relations agents; students can have a positive effect on future recruiting and hiring efforts.
  • Interns can complement the organizational or corporate goals that focus on community involvement.
  • Interns are often recruited to career positions reducing recruitment costs and lowering training costs.
