HROL Bachelor Completer Internship (Track 1)

The School of Business offers students the option to choose between Track I (Internship) or Track II (Capstone course) for HROL Bachelor Completer students who live in: Florida, Kansas, Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Internships are offered once a year, during the fall quarter.

Students who are interested in pursuing Track I (Internship) should:

1) Connect with their Advisor or HROL Department Chair, Dr. Jennifer Trout, approximately two quarters prior to being scheduled to take the Capstone course to express interest in pursuing an Internship rather than the Capstone course

2) Discuss the Internship option with Department Chair, Dr. Jennifer Trout

3) Locate and secure their internship site

4) Reach out to the Department Chair, Dr. Jennifer Trout, with information about the internship site so that the Department Chair can generate a contract for the internship site to sign. Getting an early start is important, as the contracting process may require weeks to complete.

Securing an Internship

Make sure your resume is up to date and ready to go. Treat an internship as an extended working interview. There is no guarantee that your internship will lead to an offer for a permanent role, but employers sometimes hire interns. You are welcome to submit your resume for review through Hiration at any time

Search high and low. Internships are sometimes posted on websites such as Indeed and Rasmussen’s employment portal, Job Connect. Details about Job Connect are provided below. Not all internship opportunities are posted online. Research employer websites and call directly even if you don’t see anything posted. When you reach out, introduce yourself as a Rasmussen University student (provide anticipated graduation date) and let him/her know what you are requesting. 

Job Connect

Job Connect is Rasmussen University’s job board where the employers we connect with on a day to day basis in Career Services post internships and job openings specifically for Rasmussen Students and Alumni. You can access Job Connect at and download the “Simplicity Jobs and Careers” app on your phone or tablet.
