Hire an intern from the University of Nevada, Reno

Internships are a great way to offer students career experience while getting the benefit of a student's unique perspective and skill set. In the short-term, internships offer employers access to highly motivated students and the opportunity to fill temporary job openings, free permanent staff for other projects, or ease the load during the busy season. In the long-term, internships offer employers a cost-effective means of evaluating performance and potential of employees prior to making a permanent offer.

Funding for nonprofit, start-ups and public agencies to create paid internships

The Career Studio manages an annual internship program, the Pack Internship Grant Program, that provides funding to non-profit organizations, start-up companies and public agencies to create paid internships.

The Pack Internship Grant Program

Pack interns are selected in Fall and internships begin in Spring for the Pack Internship Grant Program. Outreach to employers begins the summer before each internship cycle. If you are an employer and would like to apply to be a partner with the program, contact the Career Studio.

Employer Partnership Applications are due every summer (usually early July) for consideration in the following year's internship cycle. There are a limited number of employers selected each year. We encourage submitting applications in multiple areas of need, as we make every effort to develop a diverse set of offerings each year. A thorough application must include a proposed internship job description, duties, qualifications, and target three main skills for improvement.
