Advantages to the Employer of Having an Intern:

  • Gain a source of potential future employees whom you can observe over time.
  • Help students apply their formal education in actual organizational settings.
  • Gain knowledge about technological and other innovations in your field.

Employer's Responsibilities to the Intern:

  • Approve job duties that the interns have developed cooperatively with the internship coordinator or provide a list of job duties. The duties must require some college education.
  • Provide ongoing, informal feedback to student interns about their work performance.
  • Complete a final evaluation of student intern's performance on the internship using an online employer evaluation form. After the student intern submits an internship self-evaluation, the employer listed on the student’s internship application will receive a message directing the employer to a link to complete the online evaluation. (The employer evaluation must be submitted before the student’s internship grade will be processed.)
  • Employers are strongly encouraged to conduct a face-to-face meeting to explain their evaluation of the intern’s performance to the student intern.

Intern’s Responsibilities:

  • Perform assigned duties satisfactorily.
  • Comply with all company regulations, health and safety rules, and legal requirements.
  • Follow all company policies.
  • Comply with all applicable university regulations.
