TXWORKS Internship Program

Your college diploma is just part of what it takes to be career ready! The workforce is competitive, and to be ready to compete, you must have specific skills, be able to function within a diverse workplace, and be ready to learn, grow, and innovate.

The Texas WORKS Internship Program for Undergraduates (TXWORKS) is here to help you get ready. TXWORKS internships provide an opportunity for you to experience the career you're interested in, practice workforce skills, and gain new knowledge and skills that can help you smoothly transition to your career of choice.

TXWORKS Internships are:
  • Paid: TXWORKS internships offer an opportunity to gain experience while helping you pay for college and living expenses.
  • Worthwhile: TXWORKS internships are at least eight weeks long, with a minimum of 12 hours of work per week.
  • Meaningful: TXWORKS internships will help you challenge yourself, reflect on your current skills and ways you can grow, and ensure you are ready for what's next.
