Internships are integrated into the College of HRSM's curriculum and dedicated internship directors help students get the most out of each experience.

Remote internships

Do you need some extra help during this time of uncertainty or have a special project that needs attention, but you’re short on time? HRSM students are ready to help!

This flexible internship opportunity is freelance, project-based work. Students can complete micro-internships by working remotely on a special short-term project, or a full 10–12 week internship.

HRSM students can work flexible hours and the number of hours can vary to meet the needs of your organization during this unusual time. HRSM students are trained in analytical reasoning, finance and accounting, marketing, human resources, policy examination, service management and strategic management for various business environments. HRSM student interns can help you meet your business goals by working remotely or a combination of on-site and online.
