UD internship & job Drive
Partnering with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, the Career Services Center has launched the 2017-2018 Internship & Job Drive. Similar to an annual fund drive, our goal is to "raise” internship and full-time job opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students through our dedicated network of University of Delaware alumni, parents and friends.
Why The Drive Is Important
UD alumni, parents and friends are often our first connection to internship and full-time opportunities for students, and serve as advocates when employers make recruiting decisions.
contribute to the drive
You can contribute to the UD Internship and Job Drive in one of three ways:
- Post an internship or full-time position at your place of employment and engage in the recruiting process
- Take an active role in facilitating UD student applications through your employer's hiring process (this could include talking to your HR department about UD, interviewing on campus, or referring students for opportunities) and/or
- Serve as a resource for students applying for the internship or position at your employer by sharing information on your experience there, reviewing application materials, and/or helping with interviews. Arrange an internship or full-time position specifically for a UD student
- Represent your employer at UD career fairs, information sessions and/or on-campus interviews
Posting or arranging an internship or full-time position does not suggest that you are guaranteeing an opportunity to a UD student. While we hope that UD applicants will be strongly considered during the selection process, we understand that in almost all circumstances the employer is considering applications from other universities.
We are happy to post internships and full-time positions in a variety of industries and locations.
If you are finding or forming an internship or full-time position:
Our employer relations team is available to work with you or the recruiting coordinator at your organization to answer any questions and ensure the position is advertised effectively to the University of Delaware student body.
For internships & full-time jobs contact: Ryan Fuller, Assistant Director, Employer & Alumni Engagement, firstname.lastname@example.org, (302) 831-4765.
To ensure that an experience—whether it is a traditional internship or one conducted remotely or virtually—is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) definition, all the following criteria must be met:
- The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom.
- It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
- The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
- The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
- There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
- There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
- There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
- There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
If your organization does not intend to provide compensation for internships, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the Fair Labor Standards Act as it relates to Internship Programs Academic credit legitimizes an unpaid experience, so employers may require students enroll in our Experiential Internship course, UNIV 364, to gain credit as part of the internship experience.
