The Bauer College of Business is fortunate to be located in the city of Houston and we understand the needs our employers have for interns. Employers can post business internship assignments through our Bauer Career Gateway system free of charge.
An Internship is a semester-long, supervised work experience related to a student's major or career goal. The work experience may be part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid, for credit or not and is primarily in an off-campus environment. An important element that distinguishes an internship from a short-term job or volunteer assignment is that an intentional "learning agenda" is structured into the experience.
Employers recruiting students enrolled in the Bauer Internship Program gain:
There are certain prerequisites and guidelines students must have in order to receive internship credit. Please ask your students to refer to the internship section of our website.
If you are seeking interns and are interested in posting a position with us, please review our sample internship job postings and or review our
Recruiter Guide and register in our Bauer Career Gateway system.
The Department of Labor (DOL), has set forth specific criteria in regards to paid and non-paid internships. In order to determine if an internship may be unpaid, the following six (6) criteria must be met:
If all of the factors above are met, an employment relationship does not exist under the FLSA, and the Act’s minimum wage and overtime provisions do not apply to the intern.
Typically, resume book access is not automatically granted unless the employer has a current posting for that particular position on the system. For more information, please feel free to contact a Recruiting Manager.
