Could you benefit from a SoHE intern?
Understanding one of UW-Madison’s lesser-known colleges
Students in the School of Human Ecology (SoHE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison participate in a career readiness curriculum,, which requires all undergraduate students to complete one, for-credit internship (150 work hours during a Fall, Spring, or Summer academic term) related to their major prior to graduation. SoHE’s Career Development team is always on the lookout for local business/alumni connections and organizations interested in hosting paid interns in the following areas:
• Textiles & Fashion Design
• Interior Architecture
• Community & Nonprofit Leadership
• Human Development & Family Studies
• Retailing & Consumer Behavior
• Personal Finance
Additional Information about SoHE For-Credit Internships
• The work should relate to the student’s major/coursework. The independent project (also listed in the PDF) is also an opportunity for students to take ownership of their work and complete meaningful work. View the PDF document above for more information, and connect with Danielle Croegaert, Employer Relations & Internship Coordinator for a consultation about creating a SOHE internship.
• In this for-credit internship, the employer’s role is to provide supervision and mentorship, and facilitate feedback/communication. Most internship courses will require students and supervisors to complete, at minimum, a formal mid-point and end of semester performance review.
- Handshake is the campus recruitment software. This platform is used to post both internship opportunities and full-time jobs for graduating seniors. To participate, you will need to join Handshake as an employer by registering your company, and posting your job or internship once your organization is approved. Handshake is used across campus, so you can connect to students of all majors on the platform.
As you are submitting a job or internship opportunity through Handshake, it can also be helpful to connect with one of the UW-Madison Career Services teams to build a personal relationship with campus staff. Campus has many career offices that work with students in particular majors. To learn more about Career offices, visit https://careers.wisc.edu
