Internship Program Information for Employers

The Canisius Internship Program has a longstanding commitment of connecting students with employers for experiential learning opportunities.  Through the Internship Program, students extend learning beyond the classroom and develop essential career skills. Interns provide employers a cost-effective, skilled workforce and serve as a meaningful bridge between academic to professional career. 

Benefits of interns for your company:

  • Completing important short term projects
  • Lending meaningful value when staffing is tight
  • Providing innovative ideas and technology assistance
  • Improving efficiency by offering creative solutions to problems
  • Providing an opportunity to test talent for potential full-time hires

What is my organization’s responsibility?

The organization supervises the student’s activity and provides the internship learning opportunity.

When do internships begin?

Internships usually begin in early September or January, while summer internships begin at the end of May or June. Students can participate in more than one internship depending on their schedules, and the needs and desires of the organization.

How do I post an available internship?

For first time internship participants, complete and submit the online employer registration form. Email completed forms to Roslyn Colón at

Upon submission, your internship opportunity will be posted on College Central, an online database of internship and job opportunities where Canisius students can search.

You will receive email notification when your internship has been posted.  In that notification you will also receive an access id and password so you can register on College Central. As a registered employer, you can view and edit your posting, re-post an internship, and view student resumes. 

Employers can also contact the Internships Office to discuss your individual internship needs and to establish search communication procedures.
