Write a Plan for the Internship
- Identify goals, timelines, workspace and a general description of the project, which will become your work plan, so that everyone understands the purpose and expectations involved. There is an outline to help you create this work plan along with examples of completed job descriptions under Resources.
- After the work plan has been established, create a job description for the position.
Can you involve the intern in experiences beyond the actual work of the internship?
Yes, this could include training programs, social events and opportunities to network with executives. Best practices for social events include encouraging interns to network amongst themselves to share their experiences. Invite your intern to company sponsored events. Some companies host an end of the program experience, such as participation in a golf outing or a lunch/reception with upper management.
