Internships are career-related work experiences that provide
students with opportunities to apply skills and knowledge acquired in
the classroom to 'real world' work situations. As an employer, you may
use internships as a means of recruiting new employees instead of the
normal application and interview process. Internships provide
employers opportunities to view the abilities of candidates in a
unique way. Often companies hire their interns for full-time positions
after graduation. Internships at Union University differ due to each
individual department's policies. They can be part-time, summer,
semester-based, or flexible lengths of time. Students can obtain
academic credit for internships. We invite you and your company to
participate by contacting the Career Services Office for more details.
- Career U

Career U consists of a series of hands-on workshops aimed at converting
the average student into a savvy, successful career professional.

salary negotiation, climbing the career ladder, résumé writing, and many more,
these workshops provide the first steps to obtaining that dream job you've
always wanted. Also Career U includes an exciting fashion show
(Dress for Success) and informative workshops on specific careers.
Dynamic presenters from around the region come to share their expertise and
