Internship Opportunities for
IWU Students

These unique opportunities allow IWU students the chance to work at Indiana businesses and see first-hand what it takes for entrepreneurs to be successful. Students will have the chance to see many sides of a business and learn valuable skills with real-world experience ensuring that they stay ahead of the competition. Students should view an internship as one long interview. Many employers take on interns with the hope of turning them into a full-time employee. Even if you don’t receive a full-time offer at the end of your internship, or you choose to turn it down, the skills and experience you will gain is great for your resume and future career.

Intern Testimonial

"The best experience so far is all of the different programs I have learned. From Serpstat, Adobe, Active Campaign, and many more. I have enjoyed learning everything at my internship. I will take away the experience and knowledge on how to create effective marketing materials that are focused on the consumer, not the business and how to create something with a great design."

Intern Testimonial

"I think the best part of this internship so far has just been the ability to work with a team—using my skill set to help complete a project. Stretching my skills and what I am comfortable with, along with meeting lots of new people has also been great."
