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 as well as important connections to potential employers after graduation. However, not all disciplines have paid internship opportunities or may not have enough to meet demand. Additionally, there are organizations (e.g. non-profits, small businesses) that 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 they often must choose paying jobs over unpaid internships if required to choose. In 2019, the National Association of Colleges and Employers reported that over 70% of employers end up offering a full-time job to their interns.
