Find a Job, Internship, or Co-Op

CEMS students at UVM have a wealth of opportunities to explore internships, co-ops, and job prospects. These experiences are crucial for professional development throughout your academic journey.

The majority of CEMS students complete one or more internships during their time as UVM undergraduates. Most often, CEMS students complete full-time internships over the summer, though many also intern on a part-time basis during the academic year - typically at companies in the greater Burlington area or remotely. Most students participate in internships for professional development and for pay, though some students also pursue academic credit for internships under certain circumstances.

Students in CEMS can receive credit for internships in accordance with the Policy on Internships for Academic Credit. Internship credit must be arranged prior to the start of an internship. Contact the CEMS Career Readiness Program to discuss further.
