An internship is an opportunity for a student to spend time with one or more employees at a business, non-profit organization, or government agency. The objective is to gain hands-on experience in how business and industry work. Because attendance is so important in a workplace, applicants must have a cumulative attendance percentage of 95% or higher to be considered. Also note that internship hours are from 1:30-3:30PM, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Students must discuss any conflicts with completing internship hours during this time frame with their counselor.
