For Entrepreneurship Student Internship Employers
Review the Internship Guidelines Above and Develop a Job Description or Posting
Most students perform internship work during the summer, but some choose to work concurrently during a fall or spring semester.
Raise Awareness Among Baylor Entrepreneurship Students
Employers generally identify potential applicants and share job postings through a variety of means, including 1) the Handshake job database system, 2) community gatherings and initiatives such as 1 Million Cups Waco, 3) Entrepreneurship faculty and staff, and 4) applying to post job opportunities through the Entrepreneurship internship listings.
Interview, Select and Communicate a Job Offer to Your Baylor Intern
Employers are responsible for identifying, interviewing, and hiring workers for their businesses.
Maintain a Work Log
During a student's internship, the intern’s supervisor at your company should initial the journal/log at the end of each week to track the number of work hours, document the intern's reflections and responses relative to the internship's responsibilities and experiences, and insure that the intern is provided a variety of management/entrepreneurial experiences.
Evaluate the Internship
Within one week of the completion of the internship, your business must provide Baylor Entrepreneurship an evaluation of the internship experience and intern’s job performance. A copy of this evaluation will be forwarded to the intern.
