What’s an internship anyway?

Internships can take many forms -part-time or full-time, single or repeat experiences, paid or unpaid. Due to this, it’s understandable that there is confusion about the difference between an internship, part-time job, or volunteering. The major distinction is that an internship has learning objectives or goals that serve as the foundation for the position. An internship should apply what you have learned in the classroom to a professional setting and, as a result, you’ll gain skills, and/or in-depth knowledge of a particular industry.

On Campus Student Employment

On-campus jobs can be a great way to get professional experience in a flexible setting. These positions often allow you to support a specific department on-campus. Whether it’s research, lab work, administration, or campus outreach, these are excellent ways to dip your toes into getting professional experience at UCCS.
