Internships & Experiential Learning

Having experience in your chosen field of interest is incredibly important. Not only to solidify your career aspirations but to build your experience on your resume. Whether through a for-credit or non-credit internship, on-campus employment, part-time job or volunteer work – taking advantage of opportunities to build your resume while you are attending school will be imperative to your success upon graduation. Below are some helpful tools to explore options for experiential learning.



Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional projects that provide opportunities for career exploration, skill development, and building a network.

Micro-internships are the perfect opportunity for employers to support quick-turnaround projects while identifying potential long-term interns or job candidates through a talent-rich pool of UAB students.

Unlike traditional internships, micro-internships can take place year-round, typically range from five to fifty hours of work, and have a duration of one week to one month. Micro-internships are used by Fortune 100 to emerging start-ups and can impact various areas.
