Starting an Internship Program

Internships are a great way for students to gain relevant, real-world experience and for employers to find hard-working, future employees. Partnering with businesses in our area, CVTC strives to align our programs with industry to develop win-win relationships between students and employers.

How do you begin an internship program?

First, let's discuss what an internship is. For students, it's an opportunity to work in their program field, gaining hands-on experience which will help prepare them for a job after graduation. It also allows students to meet people in the field, start to develop relationships, and can often times apply their internship experience toward course credit.

For employers, it's an avenue to find motivated, trained part-time employees who can turn into valuable, professional positions. This low-cost recruiting tool can provide additional assistance for increased business or seasonal work, fill unique skills gaps in your workforce, and provide new perspectives to your business.

Some facts about internships:

  • Most students work an average of 10-15 hours per week. It's important to understand interns are students first and cannot work more than 20 hours a week.
  • You will work with the intern and program coordinator to set goals, monitor progress, and conduct a mid-term and final evaluation. Each program has specific hour requirements for internships.
  • An internship opportunity can be a paid or unpaid experience, depending on your company mission and the position requirements. Some programs (such as IT programs) normally receive payment for their internships.

What are the benefits of having an internship program?

  • Find future employees
  • Test-drive talent
  • Enhance perspective: Interns bring fresh ideas and new talent
  • Reach company goals with extra workload assistance
  • Contribute to developing a skilled workforce
