UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

For Students

Internships in the College of Business and Economics provide you with valuable experience in the business world beyond the classroom experience and expose you to potential career opportunities. Internship site examples include Andersen Windows, City of River Falls, Menard's, Wells Fargo, Target Corporation, Edward Jones Investments, and numerous accounting firms.

Internship opportunities will be posted on the Internship Bulletin Board in the hall outside the CBE office (124 South Hall). Internship opportunities are also announced in upper level major courses, as well as listed on the CBE Updates D2L site. You may locate your own internships (but it must be approved by the appropriate department chair). Most internships are completed over the summer.

I am planning to graduate in 2015 with a B.S. in Computer Science so I decided to apply for an internship at Securian Financial Group in St. Paul before I graduated. This experience was so valuable because it gave me practical, hands-on experience in the real world and I was able to see how all the concepts that I learned in class could be applied to a larger project in the workplace.

I am positive that my college classes have provided me with the tools and background I need for success in a career. My computer science classes at UW-River Falls especially gave me an excellent foundation. This all helped me to excel in my internship at Securian Financial Group. The company was dedicated to my success and I honestly felt like a part of the company and not just a young intern. Co-workers collaborated with me a lot and it was a super friendly work environment. It was a very different experience than being a student in classes all day.

I truly think that all students should complete an internship because it really helps you figure out if you are on the right career path. Thankfully for me, I loved my experience. It only excites me more to continue my learning inside and outside the classroom and to jump into the computer science field after graduation.
