Resources for Hosting Virtual Internships

A virtual internship is a work experience program where the participant (intern) gains experience while working in a remote professional setting and is not physically present at the job location.

Posting Jobs & Internships

  • Create an account on Handshake, our job and internship portal.

  • If you do not yet have an account, create an employer profile in Handshake. Click on the “Employers” section. After completing the organization profile (the more information you provide, the better) and are approved, you may then post internships, part-time and full-time jobs, and register for recruiting events on campus. Handshake help and tips for employers can be found here.

  • If your organization already has an account in Handshake, but you would like to be added as a contact, follow these instructions.
