    About Internships

    Students are encouraged to participate in career-related part-time jobs and internships. Our academic programs offer experiential learning in their curriculum, and many require internships or field placements. We share our internship listings with appropriate academic departments; you can list your internships with us and be sure that they are going to all the right people.

    If you already have an internship program, please post the positions on the free web sites listed above.

    Internship Qualification Criteria

    The purpose of an internship is to gain the type of experience that demonstrates preparation for a particular field.

     

    Two main criteria must typically be met to qualify a position as an internship:

    • Someone must act as a mentor to the student.
      In other words, students are not just “handed a list of things to do”. Students must interact on a regular basis with someone who has experience in their intended field. This interaction should include instruction, guidance, and advice. In addition, some academic programs may have specific learning objectives or other criteria that must be met.
       
    • The internship must offer relevant experience in the student's chosen field.
      An internship should prepare students for a position in a particular field. Students may perform some clerical duties (copying, filing, etc.), but their responsibilities must be largely career-related.

    For example, if an accounting office has a position that involves nothing more than answering the phone, making copies, filing and running errands, it does not qualify as an internship. But if students are also provided projects that involve accounting, reconciling, financial reporting or processing-related paperwork, then it becomes a learning experience related to their field, and would qualify as an internship.
