The goal of the internship program at ASU Mid-South is to provide the student with on-the-job experiences supervised by successful, experienced professionals. The on-the job training will directly support the development of the student’s technical skills, knowledge and career path, while allowing classroom learning to be translated into on-the-job practice. Students enhance their knowledge, skills, and attitudes by participating in supervised experiences that are not possible to replicate in an educational setting.
The type of internship students participate in can vary. Some courses require an internship for completion, or students may simply opt to do an internship for the benefits of networking and career readiness.
- The internship must be related to one or more of the academic departments at ASU Mid-South.
- The intern’s work must be project-oriented. No more than 25% of the work should involve clerical responsibilities (such as faxing, copying, answering phones, cold calling, and filing).
- A complete job description must be provided that includes student learning objectives for the internship.
- The intern must report to a professional staff member and be engaged in work at the internship site.
- The intern supervisor must meet with the intern and Career Services Specialist and/or faculty member at the beginning of the term to provide an orientation and to explain responsibilities and expectations.
- The intern supervisor is encouraged to provide feedback to the intern throughout the internship. A formal evaluation of the student will be requested by Career Services at the end of the term.
