Internships are supervised, career-related work experiences that help students and young alumni “learn by doing.” Internship hosts may include alumni, current parents or other members of the extended Gulliver community. Internships may be full-time or part-time.
Below are general guidelines that we expect from organizations who offer to host Gulliver students and young alumni as interns:
- Assist in developing objectives for their learning
- Provide meaningful projects and/or work tasks
- Establish a work schedule and set appropriate deadlines
- Provide work hours and responsibilities
- Explain organizational policies such as safety, appropriate attire, and the disclosure of proprietary information
- Create opportunities interact with and meet other members of the organization
- Provide a work space and the appropriate tools to complete tasks
- Provide feedback and complete an evaluation at the end of the internship (this form will be provided by the Office of Alumni Relations)
Stay connected to innovation that defines Gulliver
As a member of the Gulliver community, you understand better than anyone that innovation and cutting-edge thinking are a part of the Gulliver experience.
Build tomorrow’s community of successful professionals
Providing invaluable support to Gulliver through gifts of time and talent, hosts will be able to leverage specific and general employment expertise, share lessons learned and field perspective, network with fellow colleagues, and deliver critical, practical, and timely career guidance to students and young alumni.
Interested internship hosts are asked to submit intern opportunities by April 26, 2019.
Host-intern matches will be completed by the Gulliver Alumni Association's Student Engagement Committee in May 2019. Internships are comprised of:
- 4 to 6 week period of up 30 hours per week between May and August
- A facilitated introduction to their host by the Office of Alumni Relations
- An established a time commitment with a clear understanding of responsibilities and expected outcomes
- Communication with a member of the Student Engagement Committee of the Alumni Council to serve as a program resource, to answer questions or concerns, and to track overall progress.
Match commitments may conclude following successful employment or internship placement, or beyond, depending on the desires and interests of the participants. Participating in the Alumni Association's Internship Program, host companies agree to allow the Student Engagement Committee to review the student’s progress, and to provide a written evaluation of the intern’s performance at the conclusion of the internship.
Following receipt of the intern application form, submitted information will be reviewed and best possible matches identified, based on comprehensive experience, stated interests, and preferred industry.
A member of the Student Engagement Committee will then be assigned to facilitate introductions and serve as an ongoing resource, responsible for reviewing procedures, answering questions, and soliciting feedback on both the program and the pairing.
