How to Get Co-ops & Internships
Career Services has a variety of ways to connect students and employers for co-op and internship.
Enroll in The Wright Search and Post Your Résumé
The Wright Search is an online database and referral system enrolling students who have met the eligibility requirements for co-op and internship and who are actively seeking work.
Students seeking co-op and internship opportunities use The Wright Search to:
- create a searchable account profile
- post your résumé for employers to review
- find co-op and internship jobs posted by employers
- Learn about and register for Recruiting Days and other special events with employers
- search for employer contacts
- Sign up for on-campus job interviews
- Receive targeted announcements from Career Services
- Set up automated email alerts for job postings
Employers visit The Wright Search to review résumés, post jobs, arrange on-campus interviews, and register for events.
Once you enroll in The Wright Search, you can register for events where you will meet employers, view job postings, sign up for on-campus interviews, and search for contact information for recruiters with specific organizations.
Attend Recruiting Days and Special Events
Attend one of our targeted Recruiting Days. Each event brings together employers and candidates who share interest in a particular field or type of business. Employers come to Recruiting Days to recruit for co-op, internship, and career positions.
Employers sometimes arrange for special events to connect with students.
Interview on Campus
In our On-Campus Interviewing Program, students who meet the employer-specified qualifications may sign up for convenient, on-campus interviews using their account in The Wright Search. Employers receive résumés electronically prior to the interview. Students meet with employers at our on-campus interviewing facility during business hours.
Information Sessions and Tables
Employers may also host an information session or an information table to share information and collect student contact information or résumés.
Personal and Professional Networks
Students may find positions through their personal and professional network that matches the description of a co-op or internship. Students may register for co-op or internship for these qualifying positions.
For legal and ethical reasons, if the position in question is not defined by the employer as a co-op or internship position, the student should inform the employer of the intent to register for co-op or internship. Career Services confirms the student’s registration with the employer.
