The College of Business Employer Relations Team goal is to help students “Get to the One” — the one who gets the internship, the job or promotion. Dean Paul Jarley’s latest initiative — called Knightline — is an online community exclusively for UCF business students and employers. It was designed to connect our students with the businesses they want to work for. Through Knightline, Business students can:
- Search jobs & internships
- Show resume in employer search results
- Apply for open positions
- Find networking events
Students — New to Knightline
- Visit Knightline and choose “not a member” to begin.
- Enter your Legal First Name, Last Name and Knights email and select “Submit”.
- If the system recognizes your information, you will be permitted
access into the portal.
- If you are new to the College of Business, there may be an additional approval step. During this time, be sure to keep an eye on your Knights email. Once your access is approved, you will get an email to complete the registration process.

All About Internships
When you apply for your first professional job, prospective employers will want to know about your work experience and skills. There isn’t a better way to learn valuable skills related to your major than obtaining an internship. An internship is an official program offered by an employer to potential employees. Internships provide on-the-job training in a field that the student wants to learn more about or plans to pursue after graduation. An internship can also help you discover what career path is right or wrong for you. Students who obtain internships during their academic tenure increase their chances of getting hired into a professional full-time position upon graduation.
