Intern Application

In Fall 2020, Graduate Division will begin offering for-credit internship opportunities in GradSuccess. The internships will provide an opportunity for graduate students to earn twelve credits (via enrollment in GDIV 498i) working ten hours/week obtaining practical experience in academic administration or student services. 

This Fall, we are offering three internship opportunities in the following areas:

  • Social Media
    Assist Graduate Student Resource Center staff in creating and scheduling posts, developing campaigns, reporting on user analytics, and coordinating across multiple platforms using Canva, Hootsuite, and other software. In addition, this intern will also have the opportunity to expand our presence on LinkedIn and YouTube.

  • Professional Development
    Assist GradSuccess staff in developing our career support for graduate students from all disciplines in both academic and non-academic fields. This intern will have the opportunity to collaborate with other units on campus and UC-wide, learn systems like Handshake, and make extensive use of placement data, LinkedIn, and a range of IDP platforms.
  • Data Analysis and Reporting
    Assist GradSuccess staff in compiling, analyzing, and creating effective reports and visualizations of event and survey data dating back five years. This intern will build on reports completed by our Spring 2020 data intern and make extensive use of Excel, Qualtrics, and related software.

Interns will be mentored by GradSuccess Director Dr. Hillary Jenks, GradQuant Coordinator Dr. Yelda Serin, and Graduate Writing Center Coordinator Cristina Trujillo, and will be expected to present a final report with recommendations to a meeting of the Graduate Division Deans. Graduate students who successfully complete their internship may also request a reference/letter of recommendation from Dr. Jenks.

The application is currently open and will close at 9am on Monday, June 29th. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Hillary Jenks at
