Students follow academic semester calendars when they are looking for internships. Students usually begin their search one or two months before a new semester, however, some students are still looking for internships one month into the semester as well. To maximize student response, consider posting internships at least two months before and one month into an academic semester. [CSUN Calendar]
Internships typically last for at least one semester. If students are not receiving academic credit for their internship, students may work for longer or shorter periods of time. Remember to plan enough time for the intern to get to know the company or organization, receive any necessary training, and participate in the work environment.
Interns are usually able to work part-time (10-20 hours per week) during the fall and spring semesters and full-time (40 hours per week) during the summer. Some students will be able to work full-time during the semester as well. Please specify the number of hours per week in your job description in order to locate an intern who will be able to serve the needs of your organization.
