Need Work Experience? Apply for Work U

Work U Logo

Last year, 44% of Boise State’s graduating students said they were hired as a result of their internship. On-the-job experience is more important than ever, and Boise State’s Work U program is here to help you get it. Applications for Spring 2024 are open now!

What is Work U?

Work U is a unique internship program. In addition to gaining professional experience, you’ll be provided with a mentor, opportunities to clarify your career goals, and help leveraging this experience to launch your career. You’ll build your resume and your network – while gaining 3 upper-division credits. Here are some of the ways Work U is different from a traditional internship:

  • Every opportunity is open to all majors, skill sets, and levels of experience

  • We’ll place you into your internship – just apply to the Work U program and tell us which three opportunities you’re most interested in

  • You’ll spend 10 hours a week with your Work U employer and have class once a week
