For Employers

Elmhurst College works with employers to establish internships and mutually-productive partnerships.

Each year, more than 200 Elmhurst students complete academic credited internships throughout the Chicago area, gaining skills and providing services to their employers.

Internships offer students the opportunity to explore an occupational field and/or work experience related to their career goals. As a four-year comprehensive college, Elmhurst students major in a range of disciplines including the humanities, sciences and business. If they choose to register their internship for academic credit, they typically work part-time hours for a fixed duration.
