Companies recruit students and post jobs through Western Connect (formerly Western CareerCentral) annually from November to July. These jobs are reserved
only for students enrolled in the internship program. Each company selects and interviews
its candidates on campus and then makes job offers to the students through Western
Connect from mid-February-August.
In addition to industry job postings, students may find their own employment through what is referred to as a direct match. Any positions acquired through a direct match must approved by Western and any affiliated campus to ensure that the position and employer meet internship employment standards and expectations.
