Whether you have an existing internship program or you are listing your first role, Campus Tulsa can help you provide the best experience to your interns.
Our mission is to create more successful internships in Tulsa than ever before — for both students and employers.
We help companies design intentional, productive, and successful internship roles and programs using our Internship in a Box resource.
“Verizon believes that internship programs are a good opportunity for students to gain professional experience. All of the projects that interns work on are real situations. As such, the interns' work lives on with our existing employees when the interns return to school. In addition, the internship programs are a pipeline of talent to bring into the company as we continually refresh our talent.”
“We believe employees are our most valuable asset, and if you want to attract the best talent, you have to start early. We also are passionate about helping educate tomorrow’s future leaders. Interns at J.P. Morgan are actually called “Summer Analysts” and they function very similarly to a full-time analyst. They support our Private Bank team with analytical tasks, prospecting, and special projects. They also participate in several training opportunities over the summer.”
“Our interns are our largest candidate pool for hiring into the professional development program It is really important to us that we provide meaningful work for our interns, so we’re mindful to align our intern headcount with value-add opportunities across the organization. Over the past few years, we had averaged about 30 – 50 interns each summer.”
In today’s climate, more and more companies recognize the importance of inclusive teams, and internship programs can be a powerful engine for creating more diversity within your team now and in the future as interns transition to full-time hires.
However, companies often struggle to source diverse candidates using their traditional hiring methods and inroads.
Campus Tulsa intentionally partners with diverse student groups, institutions, and associations to create an inclusive internship search experience, especially among first generation and students of color.
“Recruiting more diverse candidates would be a dream, which would involve, probably going to other campuses, besides the ones we go to.”
“I’m a native Tulsan and have been thrilled to watch our city expand in multiple ways over the years, and I think a great deal of that is due to people with diverse backgrounds and innovative mindsets moving to our city and contributing to the growth.”
Companies need to support students as they transition into their internship role and a (potentially) new city. This support can be a stress on teams and company resources, and can also vary greatly depending upon the student’s situation. Campus Tulsa is here to help companies ensure that students have smooth transitions and soft landings.
