Job Opportunities

Getting an internship while a student can help in so many ways!  Not only will you apply the skills you're learning in the classroom, but you'll also learn what work environments are the right fit for you.  Bridge the gap between your classroom learning and real-world experiences through applied learning roles.  Not sure what an internship or coop is or where to find them?  Read below!

What is an internship?  Internships are paid or unpaid work experiences in professional settings, completed full-time or part-time, and are per semester.  Find them on Handshake!

What is cooperative education?  Coops are paid, multi-semester jobs related to your major.  Find them on Handshake!

What is Handshake?  Handshake is a national database specifically for college students (and recent alumni) that allows you to search and apply for various coop/internship positions or part and full-time opportunities.  You can also sign up for workshops, view career events, and more!


In addition to Handshake, there are two other sources of finding out about new job opportunities. 

Visit our Newman University Career Services LinkedIn page to find information on upcoming events and jobs from local employers!

Be sure to also check out our jobs bulletin board outside of the Career Services office (SH302).

Please note that all hiring and compensation for work performed by student employees is handled directly between the student and the employer.

While we do not serve as a placement office, we do try to assist in linking students with employment opportunities through Handshake.  We do not, however, perform background checks on students or employers.  Employers and students are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed.
