Posting Job Opportunities for Alumni and Graduate Students

For alumni and graduate career services, please refer to the following:

Internship Consortia  

To offer employers access to thousands of talented students, the University of Chicago has joined two internship consortia called the University Career Action Network (UCAN) and the Nationwide Internships Consortium (NIC).  You will need to register on each system.

UCAN is a consortium of 21 highly selective private colleges and universities that was founded in 1996 to share internship listings. The UCAN Internship Exchange is a dynamic database listing thousands of domestic and international internships, fellowships, and other short-term opportunities, making it one of the most comprehensive internship resources on the Internet.

NIC connects you with regional and national internship opportunities. Employers nationwide post internship opportunities for students. This consortium allows students access to over 8,000 internship listings each year.

You can access the consiortia by logging into your UChicago Handshake account and following the instructions posted in the Resource Library.

Unpaid Internships

The University of Chicago encourages employers to offer paid experiences to the students who work for them. However, for cases in which this is not possible, Career Advancement is happy to work with employers to determine a form of compensation beneficial to both the employer and the student.

For-profit employers are encouraged to consult the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) when considering an unpaid internship program. 

In cases in which an employer must require a student to receive credit, the University of Chicago offers an internship practicum to its undergraduate students. For more information about internships for credit and the University of Chicago practicum, please contact Chiara Montanari at chiaram@uchicago.edu.
