Interns for Your Business or Organization

 
 
 

Why Hire a Student Intern?

  1. It may be difficult to judge how an employee will work out at your organization, from only a resume and interview. An internship offers you a chance to see how a student functions in your work environment.

  2. Internships increase the pool of potential employees in your field because they give students the chance to try out their career choice to see if it is the right fit for them. If their experiences is good, they will be movitated to finish their education and to consider a job with your firm.

  3. Our interns have already completed coursework in their major. They can contribute to your firm and bring new ideas.

  4. You will have increased name recognition on campus through student and faculty communication channels.

Do You Have to Pay an Intern?

We strongly encourage employers to compensate interns. Most community college students work, and may have to give up another job to participate in an internship.

Also, if students want college credit for their internship they have to register in an independent study course and pay for it.

Employers can offer hourly wages, stipends, and/or cover the cost of the independent study course.

What are the Employer's Responsibilities?

  1. Because this is a learning experience for students we ask that you ensure that the student gets a real experience of career empolyment in your type of company or organization.
  2. We ask you to complete an evaluation form, that we will send you, at the end of the internship.
  3. Employers should contact the internship coordinator if problems or concerns arise during the internship.
