Post an Internship

The easiest way to get started with the UT Dallas internship program is to create a Handshake account.

Once your account has been approved you can post your positions in the Handshake system for qualified students to begin viewing.

If you have questions about how to get started with developing your actual internship position, please see the Quality Internship Assignments section of this website.

We highly recommend that you begin recruiting to fill internship positions as early as possible, preferably one semester in advance. Students are encouraged to begin their internship searches also one semester in advance. Of course, we would be happy to post your internship positions at any time throughout the year.

However, please note that when positions are posted after the semester has started and the start date is listed as ASAP, it is difficult to tell what kind of response you will get. Often students have already solidified plans for the semester.

At UT Dallas, the semesters are typically scheduled as follows:

  • Fall semester — Mid August through first week of December
  • Spring semester — Beginning of January through first week of May
  • Summer semester — Mid May through first week of August

If you would like specific dates for any given semester, please view the Academic Calendar.
