The University of New Mexico’s Division of Human Resources offers two programs designed to provide departments across campus with the ability to engage high school and non-UNM college students through internship opportunities.
The Youth Summer Worker (YSW) and Academic Internship (AI) programs provide student recruitment opportunities by highlighting UNM as an employer and higher education institution of choice. The Division of Human Resources has developed these non-UNM student programs in an effort to provide departments the ability to engage high school and non-UNM college students in mutually beneficial paid internship opportunities at UNM.
Both programs provide student recruitment opportunities by highlighting UNM as an employer and higher education institution of choice.
