Internships & Temporary Positions


The Career Services office works with students and employers to create a quality internship program that provides value for both parties.

Several academic programs at OCU require students to complete an internship in their field of study. Students in these programs can work with Career Services to find a worthwhile internship that is designed to best equip them for full-time professional employment. In addition, Career Services maintains strong relationships with community employers to determine their needs for student interns.

Employers: Want to collaborate with Oakland City University Career Services Department to hire an Intern? Internships are mutually beneficial to employers and students in many ways.

  • Interns can complete project work that may be on the backburner.
  • Internships can provide your company with access to high performing students with initiative and a "can do" attitude.
  • An Intern brings fresh, innovative perspectives to an organization.

By hosting an Intern, you’ll provide a student with a rich learning experience. Interns complete tasks that normally consume the time of your full-time staff.
