Post a job or internship opportunity

Enhance a student’s academic, career, and personal development by providing an internship

At UH West O’ahu, we recognize the value of experiential learning. All seniors must complete a capstone course where they have an option to participate in a Senior Project (typically a research paper done on a topic of interest to the student) or the Senior Practicum (120-hour experiential learning project, working with a professional(s) in an area of interest to the student, typically off-campus, for credit). The benefits of experiential learning opportunities such as internships and practica are numerous for both employer and student. Learn more below and/or contact us for more information. We are happy to work with you to create, promote, and recruit applicants for your internship.

Represent Your Organization at a Career Fair
