Learn more in less time with internships and externships—and build a valuable career network

And get help doing it. There are multiple resources across campus to help you find internships and externships when you’re ready. Working with your IUPUI career specialists will help you find internships and externships. Colleagues at your internships and externships (professionals already living and working in the Indy community) will help you make even more career connections. Many times, IUPUI students obtain full-time offers before graduating; by the time they have their degree in hand, they’re ready to start their new career immediately.
