Commissioner Demerson with TWC Interns

Texas Interns Unite! emphasizes the many benefits of internships and connects interns across the state with Texas employers and each other through virtual and in-person events, as well as a digital LinkedIn networking platform.

In partnership with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) and Texas Working Off-Campus: Reinforcing Knowledge and Skills Internship Program (TXWORKS), this initiative will allow interns the opportunity to build relationships and strengthen industry connections.

Texas Interns Unite! is an initiative connected to the Texas Internship Challenge, a leading statewide campaign that challenges employers to increase and promote internships for students in Texas. The Texas Internship Challenge portal provides a no-cost central point for employers to post internships and for students to access multiple paid and academic credit internship opportunities across the state. The Texas Internship Challenge was developed as a result of a recommendation from the TWC, the Texas Education Agency, and THECB to Governor Greg Abbott as part of the Tri-Agency Initiative. Employers interested in providing paid internships for undergraduate Texas college and university students can be reimbursed through TXWORKS. In 2022–2023, the state will fund $10 per hour for eligible internships, and participating employers match that amount. Get involved with TXWORKS.
