Provide an Internship

An internship is a bridging experience that connects a student’s academic experiences to career opportunities. The internship involves both professional and scholarly dimensions. Interns learn about applied dimensions of their academic majors as well as the pragmatic aspects of professional organizations. It can be paid or unpaid

What Are the Objectives of an Internship?

The internship should:

  • serve as a bridge between the student’s academic interests and the student’s career plans;
  • involve professional-level tasks in your organization;
  • be supervised by a professional member of your organization;
  • introduce the student to the everyday as well as unique, challenging tasks a member of your organization is likely to face; and
  • provide professional experience and networking opportunities.
