What is the On-Campus Interviewing Program?

Employers conduct on-campus first-round interviews for summer internships and full-time jobs. All interviews take place at the Career Development Center suite, MHC 123.

  • This program runs during both Fall and Spring Semester with the majority of interviews taking place in the Fall semester.
    • Fall - Late September to Early November
    • Spring - Late February to Early April
  • Students selected for on-campus interviews may be identified as finalist candidates and invited to final rounds of interviews at the company site.

What kinds of internships, jobs and employers will I find here?

  • Summer Internships  - All internships are paid. Accounting students will find busy season (tax season : January – April) internships here.
  • Full-Time Jobs - These are available for graduating Seniors.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • Applicants must be on track to obtain an undergraduate (bachelor’s degree) from the University of St. Thomas.
  • Most internships require Junior class standing at the time of the internship.  Many employers will allow Sophomores to apply.  If graduating the December after the summer, Seniors may be eligible for some internships, as well.
  • Employers with IT-related internships and jobs will be open to M.S. students in our Software Engineering Program.
  • Some employers have minimum GPA standards to qualify for an interview; specifics will be noted within position descriptions.
