Offering internships to college students can be an inexpensive way to supplement the workforce and provide students with an opportunity to gain valuable career-related work experience, applying classroom knowledge to real world work in mentored environments.  For employers, they offer assistance with seasonal or project needs, and infuse companies with youthful energy and cutting-edge ideas and technologies.  Internships can be paid or unpaid, part- or full-time.

Successful Internship Steps

  • Set challenging, yet attainable objectives for your intern. Early in the internship, schedule a meeting to confirm that the intern's expectations for the internship match your expectations.
  • Provide your intern orientation to the work environment and company policies/procedures. Topics of discussion may include: performance standards, appropriate attire, communication procedures, decision-making channels, and confidentiality. Introduce them to managers and employees to ensure others know their name and role within the organization.
  • Inform the intern of their assigned work schedule, both hours and days of the week, the location of their designated work station and provide technology support (computer and phone).
  • If the internship is paid, complete new hire paperwork and inform the intern of the pay schedule.
  • As your intern becomes trained and adjusts to the work environment, increase complexity and responsibility of assignments. Make every effort to involve your intern with meaningful, challenging projects that relate to his/her academic major and career goals.
  • Make the intern feel like part of your team by explaining how their work makes a meaningful contribution to the mission and goals of your company.

If your organization is going to establish a student internship program, determine the program's objectives, the training that will be provided, and the activities the student(s) will perform prior to the first day of the internship.  An employer that fails to properly classify a student intern as an employee can be liable for back wages, unpaid overtime, unpaid payroll taxes and benefits, and penalties.  Taking these steps will not only help ensure the success of the internship program but will also assist you in deciding if a student should be classified as an employee or an unpaid trainee.
