CAREER 300

Internship


Description

This course enables students to gain workplace experience and to develop new skills, contacts and networks in a setting relevant to future career interests. Students will undertake an internship project at a business or community enterprise. Academic content will include preparation before, and self-reflection and reporting after the placement. Consideration will be given to overseas as well as locally based opportunities.


The aim of the course is to enable students to gain academic credit by undertaking a supervised project in a workplace or community setting. The placement should align with their future career interests and enable them to experience life "on the job", use the skills they have developed throughout their study and develop new skills and relationships that will enhance their employability and work readiness.

 

Students accepted into this course will be expected to:
 

  • Identify suitable internship opportunities (with help of the course convenor)
     
  • Prepare a targeted CV for a specific placement
     
  • Attend an interview with the partnering organisation, then summarise and reflect on the interview
     
  • Set goals for their internship and create a plan for achieving those goals
     
  • Reflect regularly on their learning experience in the internship
