Is it an Internship or Part-Time Job?

We encourage you to distinguish between an internship and a part-time job. In general, an internship provides a learning opportunity for the student to acquire new skills or knowledge related to their academic discipline. A part-time job generally involves tasks that a typical part-time employee has performed in the past such as answering the phone, filing, or handling customer requests.

Internship Examples:

  • Marketing Research Projects
  • Process Improvement Projects
  • Social Media Development and Analysis
  • Financial or Pricing Analysis projects

The list varies with employers and their organizations but the goal is project work that “teaches” the students something new related to their academic discipline. Our students need both internships and part-time jobs so we are happy to list both types of opportunities for you—we just ask you to categorize your needs between these two options.

To attract students to your internship opportunities, be sure to include:

  • Internship responsibilities or duties
  • Work Location
  • Compensation (hourly, monthly, stipend, unpaid)
  • Duration of internship (summer, fall, spring) and Hours Expected (Academic Internships require a minimum of 150 clock hours in order to earn academic credit)
  • Directions for submitting resumes from interested students—who in your organization should receive these resumes; most employers prefer resumes to be emailed to a key contact for processing.
