Internships

CISE holds a Career Development Workshop (CDW) every semester, where top industry representatives from companies across the country come to interact with students interested in fields related to Computer Science and Computer Engineering. CDW provides students the opportunity to interview for internships, co-ops, and full-time positions. Students may also get advice from industries about what skills to perfect, and develop important networking skills.

UF also holds the Career Showcase every semester, a larger scale version of the Career Development Workshop for all UF students and alumni. If a company is not at CDW, then chances are they will be at Career Showcase.

In addition, Gainesville has a growing start-up scene and local companies are always looking for young, fresh talent. Check out what programs Grooveshark and the Innovation Hub have to offer.

Internships help solidify a student's knowledge of programming, problem solving, team work, and help prepare students for the work environment. Although not required, they are encouraged.

Career Planning

The Career Resource Center (CRC) provides assistance with Resume Building, Mock Interviews, and other career planning services.
