Jobs, Internships and Sponsorships

When jobs, internships and sponsorships become available, we post opportunities and encourage qualified students to submit their resumes. We pass on the resumes to employers, who then short-list candidates.

The career development team uses the Handshake platform to help match qualified students with these opportunities.
