For Employers

Wright State University offers employers the opportunity to hire students who are among the best and brightest. The university’s rigorous academics enable students to develop skills and position themselves for success after graduation.

Career Services helps employers:

  • Hire student employees in part-time, off-campus, general positions while taking classes
  • Hire students and alumni for full-time, permanent entry-level or professional positions
  • Hire students for internships/co-ops in specific disciplines
  • Create in-house internship/co-ops programs

Employers can also  access the WSU Career Services job and career resource site, an online referral system that contains many student and alumni resumes. 

Hiring Intern & Co-Op Students

Internship and co-op programs are among the best incubators of talent at a time when the expansion of our regional economy requires more educated workers (NEO, 2016). 

Career Services can assist you with hiring a student to fill your internship/co-op positions. Not sure how to go about creating an internship/co-op position at your company? We can visit your company and show you quick and efficient ways to create your own internship/co-op program without additional personnel. State funding programs are available to off-set costs for your internships/co-ops. You may qualify for one of these funding opportunities. Contact the office for more information.

For more information on internships/co-ops, contact Katy Popplewell at
