Responsibilities of an Employer Hosting a Student

An academic internship should be a realistic, practical and planned work and learning experience. Through team effort, the business receives quality student work while the intern experiences career-type work and develops job skills, good work habits and interpersonal skills. Internships may be full or part-time, paid or voluntary based on the U.S. Department of Labor guidelines for internships.

Requirements to host a Cornerstone University intern:

  • Provide a job description for the internship experience. The intern creates learning objectives in consultation with a faculty member and a site supervisor based on the job description.
  • Provide opportunities that challenge the intern's skills and knowledge and use these objectives to evaluate the intern's learning and work performance.
  • Complete a mid-term and final evaluation sent by the Cornerstone University Internship Faculty Instructor. You are encouraged to share your feedback with the student at the same time as completing the evaluation. Your gift of feedback makes a big difference.

Please Note: It is the student's responsibility to initiate the process of receiving academic credit for the internship. Once an offer is received, they should begin documentation via Handshake. If you have hired a Cornerstone student, please add to your contacts list to ensure you receive necessary communication such as the mid-term and final evaluation.
