Career Center: When to Offer an Internship
Academic Credit InternshipsStart dates and end dates for internships are generally best if they follow the academic calendar when the student is earning academic credit for the internship.
- The internship position description outlines the start and end date for the internship and we can work with you to determine what would be best for your needs in relation to the academic calendar.
- Generally the duration of an internship for credit is one semester (15 weeks) and averages about 8-10 hours per week (120 – 150 hours total).
Non-credit InternshipsThe usual length of a non-credit internship is three to six months, and the duration is negotiable depending on the student and employer availability.
Please let us know if you hire any of our students as a result of their internship. We are always interested in learning what the outcome was for employers who post positions with us. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
