Job & Internship Search

Ready for a job or internship? Our professional career counselors know the best tools and strategies for a successful job/internship search.

Job Posting Due Diligence: Students and alumni are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting off-campus employment. Career Services staff are available for consultation on how to research prospective employers. Questions about safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus employment are appropriate and should be discussed before accepting employment. The University of Kentucky cannot guarantee terms of employment posted by an employer and is not responsible for employer misconduct.


Course Credit for Internships 

B&E 396 and B&E 397 internship reflection courses are new and began fall 2017. Business majors no longer need to secure a faculty sponsor. The new courses are web-based and the content and assignments are managed on Canvas. If you have secured a fall internship and would like to receive academic credit, please submit an enrollment form on Handshake.

Steps to submit your enrollment form:

  • Login to handshake using your linkblue username and password
  • Select the Career Center tab and choose Experiences as the drop-down option
  • Select Request an Experience
  • Select B&E396 or B&E 397 Internship under "Experience Type"
  • Complete the entire form for approval
  • Your enrollment form will be reviewed for approval within two weeks

Students must complete the request within two weeks of starting their internships. Once the mid-term point of the semester occurs, students may not add these courses in the current semester. Please contact the Graham Office with any questions regarding earning academic credit for your internship.

Consult our Internship Course Guide to learn more about  the course options and the related guidelines for earning academic credit for an internship.
