Winter Term Internships: Post Internship


About | Guidelines | Timeline | Post Internship | Select an Intern


The Career Center is pleased to announce that internship sites may now post their own Winter Term internships directly to our online database, ObieOpps. We believe you will also be pleased with this change, as you will be able to make edits to your posting after it is submitted, and to manage your applications online, simplifying the application process. In addition, you will be able to re-post the same description or a similar one in future years, or use your description to quickly and easily post summer internships as well. The Career Center staff will be available to help if you have questions or need assistance with this new system.
