Guide to Internships
As a sponsoring organization, you can offer substantive work experiences that support students' academic and career goals.
If you do not yet have an established internship program, or you would like to consider ways to improve your current one, keep reading! This guide was made in an effort to provide resources for assisting organizations in creating internship programs. Resources have been compiled from associations such as the National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE) and the National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE); as well as the Starting and Maintaining a Quality Internship Program compiled and edited by Michael True, Director of the Internship Center at Messiah College.
