Working with Student Interns
Many small to midsize companies have not had the experience of working with interns or building their own internship programs. Here are a few best practices for working with and supporting interns:
- Provide students with training and check-in points.
- Build a relationship with students through supervision and mentorship.
- Provide a reliable virtual platform (e.g. Zoom, Slack, Google, WebEx, etc.)
- Onboard interns how you would entry-level employees, with some additional support.
- Link students with the rest of the company to help build rapport with other colleagues.
Throughout the program, the Center for Global Business serves as a resource for companies and students new to navigating virtual internships.
Students and companies are encouraged to contact the center via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the program and get answers to questions.
