Employer/Job Supervisor’s Responsibilities
- All internship supervisors and employers are expected to provide student interns with clear job requirements. Students shall know about their responsibilities and supervisor’s expectations.
- Students shall be assigned to responsibilities related to their major where they could contribute, add value and develop their skill and knowledge.
- Although it is understood that a student may be expected to perform limited clerical duties, he/she must also be given the opportunity to work somewhat independently in order to develop his/her initiative, creativity, and problem solving skills. The internship must help a student to further develop his/her human relations skills as well as his/her professional conduct and sense of personal integrity.
- The job supervisor shall help student to outline his/her job responsibilities.
- Scheduling of days and hours will be done at convenient and efficient times based on agreement of both student and Internship supervisor.
- Total required number of hours for internship course is 120 hours, however, the supervisor and the student may agree to do more number of hours to finish an un-finished project.
- Job supervisor shall support and mentor and periodically evaluate student intern’s performance and make suggestions for improvement.
- An internship is considered a job. Therefore, a student can be terminated if he/she is not performing as expected. This will result in a failing grade. The Instructor of Internships class should be notified whenever there are problems and before the termination of a student.
- Final evaluation will be completed by the job supervisor on performance, behavior, and professionalism of intern at the end of the internship job and send to class faculty.
- This final evaluation along with student self-evaluations and other class requirements will be used for grading purposes.
