Career Path Internship (CPI) Program


About the CPI Program

The CPI Program is a paid internship program which allows students to gain hands-on, real world experience in their chosen course of study or an internship which aligns with the student’s career goals. The CPI program was created in 2010 to provide meaningful job experience to ISU students through internship opportunities. Studies have shown that students who participate in internships become more effective employees, have higher job placement rates, and earn higher wages than their peers. The CPI Program helps students connect with internships that will enhance their academic and professional careers including internships based in local organizations. 

For more information about the CPI program please contact Emily Jahsman at jahsemil@isu.edu.

CPI Intern of the Month

To nominate your student intern, please provide a short paragraph that includes the student's name, internship duties/projects, and why the student deserves this award to jahsemil@isu.edu. Non-winning nominations will be considered for future months, so you only have to submit a nomination once per intern. 

We review all nominations each month and pick the best and brightest intern to feature on ISU's main webpage, the News & Notes, as well as the Idaho State Journal. Interns will also receive an official certificate, a Chartwells' food voucher, CPI swag and bragging rights for the entire month!
