We do not want the extra workload to affect your academic performance.

    A: Great! We are recommending students search for a company of their interest. Please note that the company has to be within the city of Brownsville. If the employer is interested in the program you can pass the contact information to the All In Internship Coordinator so she can sign you and the employer up.
  • How many interns can I have in the program?

    A: Up to two for UTRGV and two for TSC. An employer may have more students employed with their company and may utilize Career Services for recruitment purposes however, may not be eligible for wage reimbursement.

  • I already have a student working for me. Can they join the program?

    A: Yes. If you already have a student working for you, it is very easy to join the program as recruitment tends to be the most challenging part of any business venture. However, the student will have to be placed in an internship position at your business. Provided your student employee is working in a field related to their major, simply fill out the W-9 and the Work Agreement and you’re all set! If the student desires academic credit for the internship, he/she must speak with their academic advisor
