About Union Pacific Internship Program

The Intern Connection Program (ICP) is a companywide, structured program to promote learning about Union Pacific, discovering the functional departments, opportunities for community volunteering, networking and communication with senior leaders. The ICP will have organized events throughout the year, with a peak season in the summer, as more interns join from a variety of universities.  Events include orientation, networking, “Learning from Leaders” series, and “Your Railroad Fit”.
