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 description must include job duties, qualifications, location, hours, and compensation (pay, academic credit, or both). The more information you include, the better.  

  2. Share the job description with us  and provide us with a point of contact. We'll inform students and support your recruitment efforts.

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

Once you've chosen your interns, complete the following steps. We have guidelines and staff members that can support you through this process if you'd like help:

  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

Top 5 Best Practices for Recruiting

  • Familiarize yourself with NACE's Principles for Professional Practice 
  • Make sure your job description is clear, thorough, and straightforward. Students are savvy, and want to see lots of details. 
  • For those looking to establish a long-term, on-campus brand, remember that repetition is key! 
  • Try not to compare recent graduates to seasoned professionals,  their experience levels are apples and oranges 
  • Think outside the box - postings and job fairs are popular options, but they are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to campus engagement.   

Top 5 Best practices for Internships

Have the answers to these questions ready BEFORE you hire:

  • What are the intern's duties and learning objectives? 
  • What are our required Intern qualifications? 
  • Where, and with whom, will the intern work? 

Make sure that the internship supervisor is accessible to the intern:

  • Offer feedback during the internship, not just at the end 
  • Be clear with your expectations - our students want to know how to do well in your organization 
  • Be prepared to answer questions.
