Internship / Job Shadow Guidelines

Project Lead the Way Internship / Job Shadow Guidelines

The Project Lead The Way Committee has outlined guidelines for student internships and recommend the following steps:

1.  Application Process:  This is two parts:  the student fills out the school application and presents it to the teacher for screening. The teacher takes that application to a prospective internship site supervisor or HR and then has the student also fill out the actual job application for the business.  If the student is going to actually do work hours at the site, then he/she should go through all the requirements of a new hire.

2.  Interview - Tour - Job Description:  Once an employer has previewed the application and would like to interview the student, a face to face meeting is arranged.  At this time the employer gets to know the student and decide if it is a fit.  If an internship is offered then the student should be given a job description and  a tour of the facility. The job description should outline if it is paid or not, hours, and duties.

The job description also needs to be clear if the expectation is project based with a beginning, middle, and end or if it is an on going task type of environment.  The site supervisor also must let the teachers know if adult supervision is constantly needed or if just checks up visits are acceptable.

3.  Evaluation / Assessment:  There will be on going assessment throughout the internship with the teachers and the supervisor.  The final evaluation will be a grade and summary report of job performance.

4.  Counselors assign school credit for the transcript.
