In Arizona, a Streamlined Internship Process

The University of Arizona, Pima Community College, and several high schools in the Tuscon region have created a one-page process and timeline instructions for businesses interested in hiring students for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)  internships. The initiative will make it easier for businesses to connect with future employees, and it offers students important, hands-on training — plus an incentive to stay in Tucson after they graduate, according to the UA website.

The initiative is aligned with Never Settle, UA’s strategic plan, which calls for the active engagement of the student body in career-minded activities, capacity building around STEM and improved engagement with business and community partners.
