Internship Program

The internship program at FPU provides a valuable opportunity for both employers and students. Employers gain a committed staff member chosen from a pool of highly talented students who can complete projects and assignments in a cost-effective manner. Internships also offer employers a way to recruit, screen and train potential permanent employees at a reduced cost before making a long-term commitment.

As an employer you give students the valuable opportunity to develop practical skills in a real work setting--an experience they can put on their resumes. Interns may work as regular part or fulltime employees while earning academic credit. Employers are required to:

  • Provide regular supervision to the intern.
  • Have expertise in the area in which the intern is working.
  • Complete an evaluation of the intern's work.
  • Develop the intern’s learning objectives by providing projects and activities.
