    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
