Does a Bulldog Need an Intern?

The University of Georgia Career Center has a wonderful opportunity for alumni to expose students to potential career fields. Intern For A Day is a voluntary job-shadowing experience for one day. Students spend time observing and working with employees to gain an understanding of the culture of the organization and its industry.

How do organizations benefit from hosting an intern?

  • A great recruiting tool – Intern For A Day provides you with the opportunity to meet and identify candidates early in the recruiting process.
  • Expose your organization and industry to students – Many students have misconceptions about career fields. They have no idea what a particular career entails… only what they see on T.V. or hear from their friends. Intern For A Day gives students the chance to develop a first-hand understanding and see for themselves.
  • Help a “Dawg” – A great way to give back to the University is with your time and experience. Intern For A Day provides you with an opportunity to make a non-monetary contribution to UGA.
  • No cost – Students are not compensated for time spent with the organization.

If you have questions about the program or need additional information, please contact Aaron Brown, Student Employment Manager, at ude.agu@bga or (706) 583-5475.
