You are encouraged to initiate your own internship opportunities (see criteria). The Department Chair of your major can provide guidance and attempt to match you with available internship opportunities and determine whether the job meets the stated requirements to qualify for internship credits. Whether you apply for an internship discovered on the internship board or submit one you find on your own for consideration, please follow the steps below.

  1. Submit an internship application (electronic is encouraged).

  2. Provide the supporting documents listed below to Audrey Ternes, CBE Internship Manager, one of the following ways (in person at 23A South Hall, by email cbe-interns@uwrf.edumail, by mail at College of Business & Economics, 410 S. Third St., River Falls, WI 54022, or by fax 715-425-0707)

  • A detailed job description from the sponsoring organization. Include dates of employment, number of work hours per week, and total number of hours of the internship

  • A cover letter noting how the internship relates to your academic program and career interests, as well as goals to be accomplished
