Recruit a Brevard College intern
An internship provides an opportunity for students to apply their classroom knowledge in a real work setting and earn credits toward their degree. Students can be enrolled in any department; the direction of which is determined by the type of credits the student needs and/or the type of work the student is doing.
How does a student earn credit?
To earn academic credit, a student need to establish learning outcomes. Learning outcomes are approved by the Students’ Academic Advisor and identified with the internship Site Supervisors. Additionally, a student must work 45 hours for every credit hour attempted, which is documented on a journal/internship log.
Paid or Unpaid?
Sites decide this depending on their policies and on the amount of work. Some sites pay hourly, while others for travel expenses or a stipend at the end of the internship. Some do not pay since it is for course credit. Every prospective intern is reminded that the "pay-off" is not reflected in the compensation but in the valuable experience gained by working in a professional environment as long as the internship meets the NACE definition of a legitimate internship. All the following criteria must be met:
- 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.
- The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
- The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
- There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
- There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
- There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
- There are resources, equipment and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
