Hiring an Intern

An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Interns can be both current students and recent alumni.

As an employer, you or a staff member will serve as supervisor to your intern. The supervisor is required to meet with the intern individually to set goals, expectations and responsibilities by completing an internship contract. This document will define the intern's role within your organization. Throughout the internship, we ask that you meet with your intern on a regular basis to review progress, projects and expectations.

At the end of the semester, or when the internship concludes, we ask that you provide us with an internship evaluation. For questions about internships, email Czarina Martinez at cmartinez@coil4.com.
