Internship Readiness workshops aim to help students put forth the strongest possible candidacy for positions. Recruiting events such as career fairs and interview days are vital to connecting with employer partners who seek to hire interns, co-ops, part-time, and entry-level roles from the School of Engineering. Networking at events and demonstrating interest in employers are keys to your success!

Participants must complete an applicant packet during their sophomore year. This should be initially completed during the first semester of sophomore year and may be updated during the second semester of sophomore year as needed. The information in this application packet will be forwarded directly to employer partners on your behalf. This application is found HERE. Note that as a component of the applicant packet you will be asked to submit your resume as a PDF. Please reach out to Neil Adams at This email address is being protected from spambots.
