Posting an Internship

Brand Your Company 

Let students get hands-on with your brand, meet you, learn from you and share it with their friends. When they do, they’ll understand your values and why your company excels. After all, today’s UC-educated students are tomorrow’s corporate decision-makers, buyers, civic leaders, community organizers, scientific partners and investors. 

How Do You Connect?

Standard ways may include virtual career fairs, job postings, virtual "campus" recruiting or offering internships.

Looking for non-traditional ways?

Consider asking us about the following:

  • Mock Interviews
  • Resume reviews during drop-in advising
  • Social media career tips
  • Youtube videos

What does it offer my company?

Hosting a virtual information session is one of the easiest ways to attract students and establish a corporate presence on campus. These events help you provide students with information about career opportunities in your organization and enable students to ask questions in an informal manner. These information sessions can be exceptionally successful when done in partnership with student organizations, a featured alumni from your organization, or prior to virtual “campus” interviews. 

What does this include?

Virtual information sessions may be scheduled for 60-minute sessions with optional space for networking post-event. This service includes coordination and promotion of your event via Handshake and our social media platforms, as well as a dedicated host the day of your event.  

How do I get started?

Contact our Industry Outreach Specialists for a consultation regarding your recruitment needs. If you would like to proceed with requesting an information session, please complete this Employer Engagement Form to get started. 

Virtual information sessions are typically held at the noon hour or in the early evening between 4 and 7 PM. The fee is $200 for private organizations, and $100 for non-profits, government agencies, and start-ups. After 5 PM, sessions will be assessed an additional $80 per hour.

Host a Virtual Coffee Chat - $100

Looking for an informal way to connect with students regarding your organization’s opportunities, culture, and brand? Through virtual coffee chats, the Career Center will assist you in coordinating and promoting 1-on-1 or group office hours with your target groups. Employers will have the flexibility to host these office hours through their virtual platform of choice. To schedule Virtual Coffee Chat, please complete this form.
