The La Follette School also works with employers to identify suitable job candidates among recent graduates or students graduating soon and arranges on-site recruitment visits to connect employers with outstanding students. These visits give employers the opportunity to interview students and give students the opportunity to learn about employers. 

Many La Follette School students also seek internships and project assistantships (PAships) to supplement knowledge learned in the classroom with practical experience. A La Follette School (PAship) is a cost-effective means for agencies, organizations, and businesses to accomplish special projects and increase productivity.
