What is Your Role as an Employer?
We think our internship program is a win-win proposition for you and for Drew students. Employers often comment that our students make excellent interns and are able to work successfully in a wide variety of areas because of their training in the liberal arts and in computer technology. Interns are energetic, enthusiastic, curious, and often bring a fresh perspective to their projects.
Also, internships are a useful recruiting tool, allowing companies and interns the opportunity to “look each other over” without the pressure of a long-term commitment.
Should you decide to sponsor an internship, we ask that the work you offer be meaningful and serve to enhance a student’s educational experience and career development. We ask that you:
- Provide a clear description of the job, including your expectations of the student.
- Support the learning aspect of the student’s internship while scheduling work responsibilities that meet your needs.
- Commit to either a four-credit project (140 working hours) or a two-credit project (70 working hours) over the course of a semester.
- Read and sign the student’s learning contract before the internship begins. It is important that you discuss internship goals and objectives with the student before approving the learning contract.
- Offer orientation, training, and direct supervision of intern’s work.
- Give appropriate feedback to the intern on an ongoing basis as well as complete an evaluation form twice during the internship.
