What

STEP ONE

Pre-term

Meet with instructor for résumé/portfolio review and discuss/continue to communicate options for internship to obtain verbal pre-approval

 

Apply for internships; follow up; interview (send thank you afterward); secure internship; arrange start date and establish work schedule

STEP TWO

Weeks 1 & 2

The Personal Addendum to the Syllabus (Learning Agreement) is due at the end of your first week of internship and absolutely no later than the third Friday of the term.

 

Begin internship; customize LIVE REPORTING FILE and begin entering time/duties – this should be done each day you work throughout the term

 

Download, type responses, SIGN/INITIAL, and upload the Personal Addendum to the Syllabus (Learning Agreement) – this should be done by the end of the first week of the term.

STEP THREE

Approximately weeks 3, 7 & 12

Reporting checkpoints & reflections (Instructor can check your LIVE REPORTING FILE at any time, but will review and comment during these weeks).

Weeks 3-15

Keep your LIVE REPORTING FILE updated because your supervisor can check it at any time and regular checks occur through the term.

 

Perform well and document your learning each time you go to your internship via your LIVE REPORTING FILE

 

Schedule a time after midterm to present your portfolio to your supervisor and seek his/her feedback and commentary on it at this point in your academic career.

STEP FOUR DUE DAY/TIME OF FINAL EXAM

  1. Your supervisor’s evaluation submitted online
  2. Your finalized LIVE REPORTING FILE including FINAL REFLECTION
  3. Your FINAL uploads to Schoology
    1. Link to updated résumé/portfolio that should have samples from this internship included
    2. LinkedIn URL

 

If you don’t have an online portfolio yet, set one up during the internship and have at least three samples of your best work.

Steps 1 through 4 are also required in summer. The summer internship session begins after graduation in May and lasts through July. Summer interns may begin their internship anytime before mid-June.
