  • What is an internship?

    An internship is typically a one-time work or service experience related to the student’s academic major or career goals. Internships generally involve students working in professional settings under the supervision of practicing professionals.

    Internships can be paid, for academic credit or for no credit or payment; and they can be part time or full time (typically part time during the academic year but may be full time during summer and winter breaks).
  • What should I consider before hiring an intern?

    While hiring an intern offers many benefits to a company, it is also brings responsibility and a commitment on the part of the organization. Internships are designed to provide the student with significant professional opportunities to hone skills and develop an understanding of and appreciation for organizational culture. While all interns expect to perform clerical work in support of their jobs, an intern’s job responsibilities should consist of pre-professional or professional activities.

Internships offer tremendous rewards to both interns and their supervisors.
