Need help with starting an internship at your organization? If your organization is in need of part-time or full-time help from a college student, we can help you put together an internship that will be a win-win situation for the student and your organization. Because we specialize in assisting employers who need employees, we can help you tailor-make an internship that will pay dividends to your organization. An internship is a carefully monitored work or service experience in which a student has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what she or he is learning throughout the experience. Characteristics include:
- Internships can be full-time or part-time.
- Generally a one- time experience.
- May be paid or non- paid.
- Internships may be part of an educational program and carefully monitored and evaluated for academic credit as a field study, or internships can be a part of a learning plan that someone develops individually.
- An important element that distinguishes an internship from a short term job or volunteer work is that intentional “learning agenda” is structured into the experience.
- Learning activities common to most internships include learning objectives, observation, reflection, evaluation and assessment.
- An effort is made to establish a reasonable balance between the intern’s learning goals and the specific work and organization needs done.
- Internships promote academic, career and/ or personal development.
Please contact us via email at email@example.com if you would like to partner with us to create an internship at your organization.
Externships are designed to allow students observational experiences (1-3 days) with a professional at their place of work, experiencing a “day in the life” in the host’s career. Externs can “shadow” individuals at work, take tours of the work place and job sites, and work on small projects for the company. These experiences will help the students gain an understanding of what the daily responsibilities include in the careers of professionals.
Externships take place over winter break. If you are interested in learning more about hosting one or a group of students, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
