  • Meet and work with professionals in your field and establish contacts for references
  • Gain a competitive edge for employment or graduate school admission

How to Find an Internship

Log into Tiger Jobs to search for internships with companies looking to hire Pacific students.

The Tiger Jobs Board lists paid and unpaid internship opportunities. We encourage students to explore opportunities and determine their own path.

Students Please Note: This notice is to inform you that The University of Pacific posts internships that may be paid internships, subsidized internships (compensation is below the minimum wage) or unpaid internships. We at the University believe students should have the right to consider an experience in and of itself valuable enough to justify an unpaid or below minimum wage compensation package and therefore have included this on the Tiger Jobs Board. We encourage all students to do their research and make an informed decision about internships and employment opportunities.
