UIT Student Employee Program

Real-world experience with enterprise IT 

More than just a job

Student employment in University Information Technology (UIT) is real world experience, not busy work or fetching coffee.

Our program focuses on mentoring and providing a hands-on experience with enterprise IT. It’s unlike any other student employee program at the University of Utah.

UIT rewards the energy, talent, and creativity that students bring with professional respect, a resume-building experience, flexible hours and great pay.

UIT is an exciting, rewarding place to work, and word has gotten out. The program has seen considerable growth in recent years – from 17 student employees in 2015 to over 55 (and counting) in 2016.

Begin your adventure

We're a place to learn, make friends, and launch a career. For some, the program is a stepping stone to full-time positions in an IT field, and the future is bright. IT companies in the Wasatch Valley generally pay graduating students more if they’ve had internship experience. Private-sector employers which have hired UIT student employees include Adobe, Goldman Sachs, General Motors, Symantec, Boeing Space (Defense and Intelligence Systems), InContact, and others.
