Recruit on campus

There are numerous ways to get involved on campus, including: 

Case Activity: Participants compete for the best solution to a business or industry-related problem created by the employer within an allocated time frame.

Career Connections: This series traditionally consists of a panel event that is designed to introduce students to various industries and organizations in those industries; after general questions are answered by the panel, there is a period of time for networking between students and employers.

Career Fair: Attendance at our career fairs includes students from all majors and programs on campus

Career Fair Sponsor Video Message: Fair sponsors may record a video introduction of their company for use in Fair marketing

Employer in Residence: The employer volunteers a period of time (usually a day) to offer a variety of services, including resume critiques, mock interviews, networking advice, and general career advice, to students in individual 15-20 minute meetings.

Extended Studies: Students may complete a 4-week internship as an option to complete their Extended Studies requirement. This short-term internship allows students to contribute to a company by completing a condensed project or research for the employer. This is also a way employers and students can extend a semester-long or summer internship.

Information Session: These sessions comprise of a company profile presentation by the employer followed by questions from the students

On-Campus Interviews: The company selects the criteria for the students they wish to interview—only those students will have access to the event. Employers can choose either a preselect schedule, where they choose the students whom they wish to interview, or an open schedule, which allows any student to sign up for an interview

Specialized Event: We will work individually with employers to create an event to meet specific recruiting needs

DePauw provides opportunities for students to gain credit and experience through internships in multiple ways: 

Summer Internships

  • Compensation at an hourly rate ($10-12 is typical) or equivalent stipend

  • Job description of work assignments and projects/tasks
  • Specific and attainable tasks that help develop new skills in the area of professional communication, organizational literacy, and personal career development

  • Intern exit interview and evaluation
  • Students can earn 1 Extended Studies credit for a summer internship

Short-Term Internships

This option is a short-term, intensive internship experience over DePauw’s Winter Term or May Term, when students pursue a career exploration opportunity in any industry. This experience enables students to learn more about career options in a given industry and build on professional skills, goals and knowledge in a meaningful way. Experiences can vary, and the student is instrumental in working with their host organization to outline what it is they want to learn about the industry they will be working in.

Expectations of Short-Term Internships:

  • Internship workload of at least 30 hours each week. Students have the option to work in more than one organization or department over the four-week period and divide their working hours accordingly.
  • A supervisor within the organization must be assigned to the student during their experience.  An internship contract is completed by each student that details the student’s responsibilities and learning outcomes during their internship.  This could include project or research-based work, or simply outline the “job-shadow” or observation schedule for the student.
  • An exit interview is conducted at the end of the short-term internship between the student and host supervisor as a way to give mutual feedback on the experience.
  • Host supervisors are expected to complete a student evaluation form to assess the overall performance of the intern.
  • This can be a paid or unpaid opportunity.
  • Students can earn 1 Extended Studies credit for a short-term internship.

Semester Internships

Independently designed off-campus internships consist of academic credit (4 credits total) for full-time (35-40 hours each week), semester-long internships in conjunction with academic work for a period of 12-16 weeks.

Planning for a semester off-campus involves collaboration with faculty and staff far in advance, and students seek advising as early as possible.

Guidelines for a worthwhile experience are the same as summer internships, but longer-term projects can be assigned due to the extended timeframe. Students can earn 1 Extended Studies credit for a semester-long internship. 

Fellows Programs Semester Internships: Please contact the program you are interested in to learn more about specific requirements for their students.
