Frequently Asked Questions

Because a majority of our college recruiting occurs on campus, the best way to apply for opportunities with UnitedHealth Group is through your campus’ online system or with Career Services. If UnitedHealth Group is not actively recruiting on your campus, we invite you to search and apply for opportunities on our college careers website.

While the process may vary, typically, the first round of interviews is completed on campus, and the second round is done in our office.  After the second round of interviews, candidates are notified if they will or won’t be receiving an offer.

This is determined by business need and individual performance during internship. No guarantees, but it is our desire to convert interns who have proven to be strong performers to full-time employees.

Although we do not provide sponsorship for most of our college internship or full-time roles, UnitedHealth Group carefully reviews the number of employees who require visa sponsorship. Policy requires that the number of visa-sponsored employees is kept at a minimum due to the expense, time, and resource commitment these visas require. On a limited basis, UnitedHealth Group will also sponsor the permanent residence process. Each decision is evaluated on a case by case basis depending on the availability of qualified applicants.

While we have many opportunities for college students in multiple Minnesota offices, we also offer opportunities in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, North Carolina, Arizona, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, and other locations around the country.

While UnitedHealth Group is a global company, at this time, we do not have any formal student programs through which we send U.S. students abroad. However, as you grow your career at UnitedHealth Group, there are many opportunities to develop in the international space.

Please check with your recruiter to see if summer housing is provided for your role/program.

UnitedHealth Group offers employees extensive career development and training opportunities. While this will vary from manager to manager, new college hires can expect to have regular feedback sessions with their manager, and an annual formal review process. New college hires can also participate in a new college hire orientation with the opportunity to connect and network with other new college hires.

Typically, UnitedHealth Group does not offer relocation for internships or full-time college roles.
