Recruiting Tips

We want to do all we can to ensure that your internship opportunity is publicized effectively to help you attract the best interns on campus. With the many employers we have worked with, we have observed trends as to what actions can be taken to help you fill your position. A few suggestions:

  1. Develop a structured plan outlining what the intern will be doing over the course of their internship with defined expectations, qualifications, and responsibilities.
  2. Avoid being vague in the wording of your internship posting. Specific information regarding desired qualifications, job responsibilities, wage, and work schedule can go a long way to attracting a student.
  3. Make the internship a paid opportunity. As an example, an internship in fields like marketing, graphic design, computer science, and finance will nearly always be paid. To ensure interest in your positions, we recommend that you offer compensation.
  4. Participate in events such as the Career and Internship fair or STEM Fair. See the recruiting section, to learn more.
  5. Connect with one of our internship coordinators. There is a coordinator for every school/college at UVU and depending on your field of interest, we want to connect you with the best coordinator for your specific needs. If you have any questions regarding UVU schools and/or major majors offered at our university, please contact Martin Overly at martin.overly@uvu.edu
