WHY BECOME A CRIMSON COMPANY?
By hiring Crimson Interns participating employers join a select group of Crimson Companies given the opportunity to 1) source great candidates early in their undergraduate experience; 2) recruit from a wide variety of majors; and 3) hire University of Utah students as Crimson Interns on a recurring basis by establishing a pipeline of talent. All while partnering with the Career & Professional Development Center team to offer a high touch recruitment process to help Crimson Companies identify talented U students!
WHAT IS A CRIMSON INTERNSHIP?
Crimson Internships are designed to engage employers in developing quality, high visibility internships for U students. Crimson Internships are unique internship experiences designed to enhancement the career exploration process and bolster the professional experiences of talented U students.
HOW IT WORKS
Students who apply and meet program requirements are asked to record an IntrodUce video and required to attend an employer round table Meet & Greet event to get to know all participating Crimson Companies. They then submit a list of the internships for which they would like to be considered. Students who complete the process will have their portfolios shared with participating Crimson Companies. Students then go through selection processes and final interviews with the employers. Crimson Companies make final offers and notify the Career & Professional Development Center of which students they have decided to hire.
To participate, employers must:
- Offer internships that are a minimum of 10 weeks, professional in nature, and supervised
- Ensure internships meet University requirements for approval. View Approval Rubric
- Submitting an internship does not guarantee participation as a Crimson Company. The Career & Professional Development Center will review each submission for program fit.
- Internships must be professional in nature and provide a connection between students University degree work and their future professional and career aspirations.
- Follow program deadlines for position submission, intern selection, and hiring decisions. View Program Dates and Deadlines
- Be willing to communicate hiring decisions, as well as intern and program feedback to the Career & Professional Development Center throughout program
- Compensate interns appropriately. Review the FLSA guidelines and consult with their Human Resources departments to ensure they are in line with rules and regulations.
