Host a RWU Intern

Employer Internship Information

Undergraduate professional work experience, by any name, is praised by students, faculty and employers. It is considered one of the most valuable components of a student's education. Experiential learning, which includes both cooperative education and internships, allows students to integrate classroom theory with on-the-job, hands-on work experiences.

While in the field, a student's formal education is reinforced as it is put into practice. When the student returns to the classroom, the student has a deeper understanding of the material taught and is able to enrich classroom discussion with relevant personal work experience. Meanwhile, employers are often conducting semester long "interviews" having found internships and co-op positions to be a very effective recruitment tool. Many times this results in full time employment after graduation.

Co-ops/Internships are arranged on a semester basis. (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer) Job assignments may be part-time (usually spring or fall) or full-time (usually summer or winter) and length of assignment may vary according to employers needs. The minimum number of hours that an employer must supply is 135 or 120 for Psychology students.

Employers from all different geographic locations can post Co-op/Internship positions for our students. Many of our students are from the northeast, but some are from other parts of the country and the world and some are willing to travel for the work experience.

Post your Co-op/Internship job description in our online database called HAWKS HUNT. You must first register yourself as an employer in this database before you can begin posting positions.

Details - Employers hosting an intern from RWU must:

  1. Fill out the performance evaluation form(s) which will be sent directly to the student's work supervisor during the semester. Completed evaluations are forwarded to the student's faculty sponsor to be considered when awarding a grade for the internship experience.
  2. Provide the opportunity for a brief site visit to be performed if requested.

If you are interested in providing a Co-op/Internship opportunity, please login to HAWKS HUNT and supply your information. Contact the Career Center with any questions.

 

Criteria for an Experience to Be Defined as an Internship

To ensure that an experience—whether it is a traditional internship or one conducted remotely or virtually—is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the NACE definition, all the following criteria must be met:

  1. The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
  2. The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
  3. The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
  4. There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
  5. There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
  6. There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
  7. There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
