Internship Plan & Outcomes
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE -- the actual agreement will be customized for each internship; the student and the internship sponsor write this section and then submit the draft to Mr. Roberts for review.
á This Internship will provide practical experience in preparation of a newsletter and various fundraising appeals.
á Mr. Roberts (USF) will work closely with Ms. Johnson (ABC, Inc) to coordinate writing and editing tasks that will help the student learn the procedures of document conception and preparation, and well as how to work with a team, with management, and with company clients.
á Work will be coached, evaluated, and graded by standards similar to those used in other ENC courses at USF Sarasota-Manatee.
á The student will be expected to observe all policies and practices of ABC, Inc., including those concerned with confidentiality, security, and office procedures.
á Compensation, if any, is not a requirement of this plan and thus must be arranged directly between ABC, Inc., and the student.
By the end of this internship, the student should demonstrate competency in the following:
