Recruit a LaGrange College intern
An internship provides an opportunity for students to apply their classroom knowledge in a real work setting and earn credits toward their degree. Students can be enrolled in any department; the direction of which is determined by the type of credits the student needs and/or the type of work the student is doing.

How does a student earn credit?
To earn academic credit, a student must demonstrate new learning. This is done by establishing learning outcomes – one for each credit hour attempted. Learning outcomes are approved and monitored by Career Development Center personnel and internship site supervisors, with frequent input from academic advisors. Additionally, a student must work 40 hours for every credit hour attempted, which is documented on a signed weekly journal/internship log.

Paid or Unpaid?
Sites decide this depending on their policies and on the amount of work. Some sites pay hourly, while others for travel expenses or a stipend at the end of the internship. Some do not pay since it is for course credit. Every prospective intern is reminded that the "pay-off" is not reflected in the compensation but in the valuable experience gained by working in a professional environment as long as the internship meets the NACE definition of a legitimate internship. All the following criteria must be met:

  1. The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
  2. The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
  3. The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
  4. There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
  5. There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
  6. There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
  7. There are resources, equipment and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals. 

Terms offered:
Fall Semester: September-December
January Interim Term: January
Spring Semester: February-May
Summer: June-August
