Internship Guide

Opportunities to learn outside the classroom are a critical component of a college education. Internships provide a powerful mechanism for students to learn and for employers to guide and evaluate future talent.  When done well, internships are truly a win-win!  Download this Internship Guide for tips and resources for establishing and enhancing internship programs.

Learn more from the Foster Internship Guide.


UW utilizes the online recruiting platform Handshake to facilitate employer and student outreach — think LinkedIn for students! Hundreds of colleges and universities use Handshake, making it easier for companies to post jobs, internships, and events to a massive pool of potential candidates. Companies can connect directly with individual students, too. 

Learn more from Foster’s Handshake Guide or visit Handshake’s Employer Help Page.
