Don’t have time to set up an Internship Program?

Start small with a Micro-Internship. A micro-internship is a project-based assignment typically taking 40 hours or less and completed within a couple of weeks. UTPB partners with Parker Dewey. Employers can register and utilize Parker Dewey’s services specifically to hire Falcons. All projects are paid however there is no additional cost for the service. Best part, you decide to hire the candidate without any conversion fees. Parker Dewey does all the heavy lifting and even has sample project templates built out for you to use.

For those employers wanting to go big, we can help you establish an internship program by starting with a 1-1 consultation to access needs and set goals and develop a strategic plan. Additionally, you will have access to internship resources and assistance in building intern job descriptions with learning objectives. Learn more by contacting Careerservices@utpb.edu.

How much will an internship program cost?

There is no cost to recruit or post internships on Handshake or Parker Dewey. Any services or assistance from our Career Services team is provided at no cost. Most internships at for-profit companies are paid internships. Some companies or organizations pay by the hour or a stipend. The most attractive benefits will attract the most candidates. Employers can base wages on a state’s minimum wage requirement. For more information on compensation, refer to the DOL – wage and hour division. https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/fact-sheets/71-flsa-internships
