Nationally more than 50% of students who completed an internship were offered a full-time job with that employer upon graduation. Faculty and Staff play a huge role in helping students find internship opportunities. Let the Career Development Center be a resource for you to guide students on the path to success from college to career.
The Career Development Center offers two ways faculty and staff can be involved with student internships. We host biannual Internship and Co-Op Summit meetings bringing faculty and staff involved with internships together to discuss issues and guide the university's experiential learning. There is also a listserv connected to this group. Contact Dr. Stuart Esrock, Department of Communication Faculty Liaison to the Career Development Center, for more information.
Help a Student as a Faculty Sponsor
No one knows your discipline better than you. You can use the Career Development Center for resources to help your student throughout their internship as a faculty sponsor. Contact Dr. Stuart Esrock or Ron Burse (Internship Coordinator) for more information.
Your students can schedule an appointment with the Internship Coordinator to begin the process of landing the perfect internship.
