Background/Objectives: Internship is a mandatory program for all students to enable them to graduate. In other word, for most students, internship is stipulation for their graduation. Internship is intended to expose students to the real working environment and provide opportunities for students to prepare themselves for the working challenges in the future. Therefore, we intend to introduce the Internship and Career Portal to solve the problems currently affecting the existing manual system. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In order to find out the impact of user factors on the user’s adoption of the Internship and Career Portal, a survey was conducted among the students that have undergone internship. A questionnaire is used to find out the factor affecting user adoption towards the portal. In this study, multiple regression analysis is applied for estimating the relationships among independent variables and dependent variable. Findings & Results: The results of this study show that Internship and Career Pressure (ICP) and Perceived Ease Of Use (PEOU) have impact on the users’ adoption of using the Internship and Career Portal. Based on the research results, the portal must consider the ICP and the PEOU to ensure that the users are satisfied with the portal.
