Career Services Internship

UA Little Rock strongly encourages all students to do an internship before graduation regardless of major. Internships provide valuable real-world experience in one’s chosen field and important connections to potential employers after graduation. However, not all disciplines have paid internships or may not have enough to meet demand. Additionally, some organizations (e.g. non-profits, small businesses) may be able to provide important experiential learning for our students but are not able to budget for paid internships.

Paid internships are critical to our students because, if given the choice, they often must choose paying jobs over unpaid internships. According to results from a study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 62% of the 2023 graduating seniors took part in an internship at some point in their college career—and 59% of those were paid. That’s good news because paid internships are a path to full-time work.
