UM Alumni illuminate the path to success for UM Internship Experience students by serving as mentors, advisors, sponsors, and even internship employers as students explore, prepare for, and participate in summer internships nationwide. Alumni can help students make the transition from campus to career and can help support the UMIE program by hosting events and donating to the UM Internship Experience scholarship fund to increase access to internship opportunities. Want to give back to the Ole Miss student community? Let us know how you’d like to be involved.
Internship employers are central to the UM Internship Experience. You can offer opportunities for interns to explore their field of study in a real-world setting, including the discovery of career paths and connections with experienced professionals. UMIE staff interview, coach, and prepare students for a transition into a professional workplace and the program provides structure and intentional support for both students and employers to create a mutually-beneficial summer internship experience.
