Hire Talent from Georgetown Startup Interns

Your company has exclusive access to talented, well-trained Georgetown Startup Interns (GSI) for summer, fall, and spring internships! 

GSI creates a marketplace for startups, growth-stage companies, and international social enterprises to recruit entrepreneurially-minded undergrad and grad students for internships. You can add your internship postings on Handshake today!

Students enroll in a unique 3-credit course to learn foundational professional skills via asynchronous online skills workshops, leadership coaching, and bi-weekly reflection papers. The Startup Internship Seminar course is now offered for undergrad and grad students during the summer, fall, and spring semesters at Georgetown.

If this is your first time hiring Georgetown Startup Interns, please register your company. Most of our companies continue to hire each semester and only need to register the first time. You can move ahead to add your internship postings on Handshake, and then register internship postings to market them to our students.
