Internships are an invaluable experience that not only make you more marketable to employers, but they also help bring into focus what you really want to do after graduation. Our strong industry connections have helped students secure internships with state and federal agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, as well as with private businesses such as Boise Cascade.
The benefits of an internship include:
- Relevant work experience
- Professional mentorship
- Valuable network of contacts
- On-the-job training
- Class credit (in most cases)
- Possible paid positions
The University of Idaho Career Center and Human Resources assist students in finding internships and summer jobs.
