Offer Internships

Thank you for your organization's interest in offering internships! We're certain this can be a positive experience for all involved.

Internship Setup

Setting up your internship is simple:

  1. Create a job description for your internship. The more information you include, the better. Necessary details includes: job duties, qualifications, location, hours, and compensation (pay, academic credit, or both). You can also use this form as a template.

  2. Share the job description with us , and provide us with a point of contact. On our end, we'll get the word out and support your recruitment efforts.

  3. Select your interns the same way you would hire a new employee.

Once you've chosen your interns, we'll be asking you to complete the following steps. If you want, we have guidelines (and staff members) that can support you through this process:

  1. Develop objectives and activities and record these on the Learning Contract.

  2. Instruct and supervise the intern to achieve the learning objectives.

  3. Evaluate the intern's performance with a midterm (4th week) and final (8th week) evaluation.

  4. Provide a Final evaluation
