Career Services

Your internship is step one

We're dedicated to your career success. All PETM students complete a required internship or student teaching experience, giving them real world experience that strengthens their degrees.

Our internship curriculum focuses on hands-on experiences and project-based learning that gives you the skills you need to be successful, whatever you may do after graduating from IUPUI.

Each department has an internship coordinator who will provide a list of organizations with available internships and guide you through the process of applying. Other organizations can be considered, if they meet the criteria, on a case by case basis.

Our career services are part of a distributed network of programs across campus, dedicated to matching students, alumni, employers, and faculty and staff with the best career resources.

You should consider your interests, skills, and career goals as you select your internship.
