For Agencies: Recruiting Student Interns

Interns rock climbingThe RPTM internship program offers resources to students so that they may research, apply for, and select an internship site that is most appropriate for their career interests. The Penn State RPTM internship program welcomes agencies to recruit RPTM students for internship opportunities.

A current listing of internship opportunities is sent to the RPTM Listserv every Friday.

If you have a job or internship that you would like us to post, please email a brief position description including major responsibilities, compensation and/or perks, application process, deadlines, and contact information to The information will then be forwarded to our email list of RPTM undergraduate students.

Please do not send PowerPoint presentations, flyers, hard copy brochures, or posters.

The best times to send announcements are:

  • September/October for spring internships
  • January/February for summer internships
  • March/April for fall internships
