With limited resources and diminishing budgets on university campuses, university departments are struggling to find the necessary high-tech inexpensive IT (information technology) expertise and resources to help develop and support technology initiatives. In the past, searches for appropriate IT candidates were conducted externally, but with tight funding, and the uncertainty of future funding, more and more university departments are looking to alternative options. Internal candidates, candidates already at the university in some capacity, represent an often overlooked and untapped resource. Through senior capstone projects, course work, internships, work study programs, assistantships, partnerships, mentoring programs, and other opportunities, departments can find IT expertise for a fraction of the cost or for no cost at all. This paper describes the pros and cons of each opportunity, the benefits to both parties, and how to create opportunities if none exist.
