during specific days and times of the week and are open to all volunteers. Some examples
would include: After School Tutoring, Boys and Girls Club, the Maryland Food Bank,

The Career Center at Towson University assists employers with finding student interns throughout the year, including fall
and spring semesters as well as winter and summer terms. Through job fairs, on-campus
recruiting and one on one relationships, the Career Center is able to help local and
regional employers find outstanding student interns.
Hire @ TU
Handshake is a free online database system that allows employers to post internship positions
and connect with Towson University students. Handshake assists employers in placing
hundreds of interns each year.
External Graduate Assistantship
Unlike the conventional hiring process, TU’s External Graduate Assistantship (EGA) Program is a simple and cost effective way to hire experienced technical staff. Through this
innovative program, a company contracts with TU for the services of our graduate students
for up to 20 hours per week, for a choice of time periods (5, 10, or 12 months). Although
students are TU “employees” they work at the company site under your direction on
company specific projects.
