Internships and Candidate Recruitment
UC Irvine is a magnet for top-tier scholars -- from within California, across the nation, and around the world. Internships introduce you to the next generation of professionals, while affording your company talented staff for deployment on special projects, or to augment your workforce. Our advisors will help you find the right candidates to meet your needs.
“Marriott International and UC Irvine have shared a long and very rewarding partnership for over a decade with a unique internship program in which interns have advanced and thrived in the areas of human resources, finance, hospitality marketing and sales, industry trends and more. Our interns have added their diverse international experience to help create a warm and vibrant resort experience for our guests.”

Onboarding Program Consultation
Your new employees have the content knowledge for the job but may lack experience or essential workplace readiness skills which impacts their productivity. UC Irvine can enhance your new employee onboarding process and ensure increased retention. We provide needs assessments to identify skill gaps and can recommend training activities to help your new team members acquire the ancillary workplace skillsets they need to flourish in their new role.
Learning and Development Strategies
Whether you have a sophisticated training strategy in place or are just starting out, we have the tools and educational resources to assist. From setting up surveys and needs assessments to course design and implementation, we help you ensure that your training ROI goals are met.
Customized Employee Training Portals
UC Irvine can help you create a portal on your Human Resources web page, where employees can find a list of courses you have identified as aligning with your company’s strategic goals. These can be classes from our public offerings, or customized for your company. Employees click to enroll, and the portal provides your company’s blanket discounted pricing, or you can arrange for us to us invoice you for direct payment. Employee progress is tracked using their student transcripts. We can build the portal to your specifications, and can provide a dedicated UC Irvine Student Services specialist for your employees. To your employees, the user experience is as if you have a dedicated and staffed learning and development office.
