STUDENT INTERNSHIPS

What is an internship?

Internships are typically one-time educational work experiences of fixed duration related to a student's major, or career goal. Internships provide students the opportunity to build upon, apply, and assess the concepts that are developed through the school's curriculum and to further their professional growth through meaningful "real-world" work experiences.

Colleges partner with the business community to offer students the opportunity to "try out" their major in the workplace. A meaningful internship is one that provides the students with the practical application of their college studies.

What are the benefits for offering internships?

  • Create a candidate pool for permanent employees
  • Students provide new ideas and new viewpoints
  • Prepare and train the region's workforce
  • Help employers meet the cyclical, project, or short-term needs without long term commitment
  • Highly motivated employees who can put educational knowledge to work
  • Assist the college in strengthening and enhancing departmental curricula in order to produce qualified workers in the future

WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL INTERNSHIP?

Students, as well as the organization, benefit most from a well-planned internship; one that offers the student the opportunity to perform meaningful work, while providing them with a learning experience. A work assignment that allows the student to complete a special project can be of great value to the organization and provides the student with information to include in their professional portfolio. Students benefit from being assigned to a field supervisor who is able to guide and mentor them, who can oversee their work assignment, and agrees to complete student progress reports. The student will also participate in a weekly seminar, or individual meeting with their internship advisor, where they have the opportunity to discuss relevant work issues.

ON CAMPUS RECRUITING

Students on our campus are always looking for jobs, both part-time and full-time work while they attend school, and professional positions once they graduate. That is why we would like to give you the opportunity to schedule an appointment with us to come to our campus and set up a table to recruit students. On-campus recruitments begin in September and run through December 1. Spring Semester recruiting dates begin in January and run through May. Recruiting is available at the Middletown campus and at the Newburgh campus. Recruitments are scheduled 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We provide you with a 6 foot uncovered table and two chairs. Please bring company information, applications, and vacancy descriptions with you. It is helpful if you bring a tabletop display as it draws the students' attention.

We suggest you schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance. If you let us know what majors you will be recruiting, we will make sure to notify the corresponding departments and their students. To make arrangements for a table, please call our office at (845) 341-4444 or email us at careers@sunyorange.edu.
