On-Campus Hiring Procedures

Co-Ops

Cooperative Education opportunities are degree related and are supervised by professionals. These positions are always paid and are offered to students for multiple semesters. Work assignments can alternate with school semesters (Alternating Program) or run simultaneously with school semesters (Parallel Program).

Because experiential learning programs are academic programs, we work in conjunction with the Student Success Center, which means we also focus on our students' academic progress. We want to make sure that students are receiving the support they need academically while they are receiving outstanding experience in their field. When students work through our office, we help ensure that they stay on a positive track toward graduation.

Co-ops and internships should run concurrently with the university's academic calendars.

Internships

Internships can be credit bearing or non-credit bearing. To receive credit for an internship, a student must have a complete job description to present to his/her advisor for approval. Once the position has been approved, the student may begin employment based upon the employer's needs.

Internships are one-semester work assignments that are degree related and supervised by professionals. These positions are typically paid and are generally offered during the summer. Please notify Career Services when presenting a job offer to a student for either co-ops or internships.

International Students

Many international students would like to gain applied work experience while completing their degree. While there are some employment limitations for international students, knowing your options is the first step in providing opportunities for our students.

For complete employment eligibility information, please contact the International Student and Scholar Office at 256.824.6055.

Employers' Guide to Career Fair

Nursing and Teaching Career Fair is held semi-annually at the beginning of both the Fall and Spring semesters.  For a flat rate of $200.00 you are eligible to attend one or both fairs throughout the academic year.

On- Campus Interviews

On-Campus Interviews are held the day after the Career Fair in both the Fall and Spring semesters. We will work with you to schedule locations, time slots, and serve as a point of contact for students that are selected to interview. Student interviews can be coordinated throughout the semester as long as one weeks’ notice is given.  The price for on-campus interviews is $100.00.

i4 Employer Engagement

The purpose of i4 is to purposefully match students with employer partners that view these students as potential employees. It is an in-depth introduction to the organization and allows the employer partner to engage with students on a deeper level than the traditional recruiting strategies. i4 is broken down into four phases: introduce, inspire, integrate, and invest. After three years, the employer will have participated in one full life cycle of the program, with a different student cohort in each of the phases.

For more information about i4, view the i4 Engagement Plan

Job Fairs

Job Fairs are held on campus semi-annually, during the first week of the Fall and Spring semesters.  The Job Fair provides employers an opportunity to recruit students for positions that aren't directly related to their major program of study, but affords valuable work experience and transferable skills for future career endeavors.  To participate as an employer, please complete the registration form found here.

Co-op Kick-Off

Co-op Kick-Off allows employers the opportunity to discuss co-op and internship positions with students ahead of the Fall Career Fair. Our next Kick-off will be held in August 2018.

Interested employers may now begin submitting their registrations by using our online payment system.

Month of Externships

UAH’s Month of Externships Program offers students of all majors and academic levels the opportunity to gain real-world experience by shadowing professionals in their fields. Students can shadow for a few hours to a few days, giving them the opportunity to translate their course-work into career-work. Through externships, students can experience career fields early in their education and become passionate about pursuing them further. Employer-Hosts have the opportunity to network with potential co-op students, interns, and future employees by working with the next generation of talent. Externships will be held during the month of March each year.
