Home / Real World / Internships


Employers want to hire people with experience.
But how do you get experience if no one will hire you?

internship2HU takes the anxiety out of the job search for our graduates by requiring every student to complete an intensive internship in their career field while attending HU. Plus, you’ll also complete two applied research projects that give in-depth, hands-on experience in your career field. Nothing teaches you how to do something better than hands-on experience. Once you’ve gained it at HU, you’ll be ready to confidently apply for positions in your field and demonstrate the on-the-job experience that’s so valued by employers.

Top Companies Welcome HU Student Interns
Faculty and our Career Services Center will work with you to find internships that match your career objectives. Many times, these placements lead directly to job offers after graduation. Internships are one reason 92 percent of HU graduates surveyed were either working in their career field or admitted to graduate school within six months of earning their degree.
