The Internship Process
· Qualifying students must fill out a standard City application and, upon acceptance, must complete normal hiring procedures. For purposes of this program, student interns are considered part time, seasonal employees.
· Once hired, the intern will require project direction, a work space and the proper tools to carry out their work assignments. Interns will receive ongoing feedback and instruction as necessary.
· At the completion of the program, student interns will receive a summary of their work experience and departmental recognition for their efforts.
