Career Services Graduate Internship
Overview of Career Services
UNI Career Services helps students Prepare for Life by guiding them to be engaged citizens who manage their own careers, and fulfill their own meaning and purpose. We accomplish this by providing access to over 4000 employers (70,000 alumni) and nearly 10,000 unique jobs and opportunities annually. Our goal is to lead every student to gain pre-professional experience prior to graduation, through either field experiences/student teaching or internships and part-time jobs. We host four large-scale recruitment events (fall and spring fairs for campus, an international teaching fair, and a traditional teaching fair).

As home of UNI Student Employment, Career Services manages the largest employment group at UNI. Our belief is that a campus job is more than a paycheck, it is a place to grow professionally and personally. We provide students access to over 4500 campus positions, helping them connect with opportunities related to future career.

Mission Statement: We help students succeed.
