Work U Spring 2021 Applications are now Open!

Need Professional Experience?

We here at Career Services want to acknowledge that your Boise State experience has changed significantly this semester and in the midst of this change, we want to stress the importance of having “on-the-job” experience” upon graduation. With that in mind, we are excited to open our application process for Work U during the Spring of 2021. We have over 100 Work U opportunities with some fantastic employers throughout the Treasure Valley. Check out our Spring 2021 Work U opportunities!

“Create Your Own” Work U Spring 2021 opportunity

In addition to applying to 130+ Work U opportunities, we are accepting applications for students that wish to create their own Work U opportunity! This is a brand new option! If you are a student that can identify a professional mentor, work closely with an organization for 10 hours a week for 130 hours total during the spring semester, and can describe the type of meaningful work you will be offering, then this opportunity is for you! In addition, your Work U opportunity can be fully online; this ability to go remote is especially important for students outside the Treasure Valley!

Work U is a career development experience with a twist, giving you hands-on professional work experience, clarification of your career goals, an opportunity to be mentored, focused classroom time, and a chance to build your resume and network – while gaining three upper-division credits
