Hispanic Colleges Looking For Interns

SAN ANTONIO - The HACU National Internship Program , the nation’s largest Hispanic internship program, is accepting applications from college and university students for internships taking place January 13 - April 30, 2011. Deadline to apply is Nov. 4. Applications for summer internships are also being accepted until Feb. 25, 2011.

Students accepted into the program participate in paid internships with federal and corporate offices in Washington, DC and across the nation. Internships are offered in the spring, summer and fall.

“Providing students with the opportunities to help them succeed beyond college and prepare them to enter the professional world after graduation is incredibly valuable,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. “The HACU National Internship Program continues to fulfill its mission of opening doors of opportunity by providing students a chance to earn an income and also make professional connections for future corporate and federal employment.”

Throughout the years, the HACU National Internship Program has helped many students gain employment. So far this year, HACU has known of eight students who have received offers of employment in the federal government. Last year 15 students were placed in internships with Deloitte and 8 others with Sodexo, Lockheed Martin, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. “Successful corporate interns almost always receive a job offer upon graduation,” said Flores.

The HACU National Internship Program places more than 600 students in paid internships annually. These internships provide talented Hispanic and other minority students with the opportunity to develop their career and professional skills and receive financial support to help motivate students through graduation. The HACU National Internship Program has placed more than 9,000 students in internships since its inception in 1992.
