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 motivated and 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 participating in the internship program, you provide students with the valuable opportunity to develop practical skills and knowledge in a real work setting--an experience they are able to put on their resumes.
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.
Work with the intern to develop their learning objectives by providing projects and activities.
Interns may work as regular part-time or full-time employees while earning academic credit. Each unit of credit requires 60 hours of internship.
