Internships

Internship experiences are vital to a well-rounded education​ and provide students with the opportunity to learn and grow in fast-paced, real world environments.

Working outside of the classroom allows students to be exposed to different careers, learn from professionals, and develop lifelong skills. Through different internship opportunities facilitated by TEAK, students gain valuable skills, perspectives, and experiences while also making a difference at their host sites, with some students earning full-time employment at their internship sites.

 

 

College Internship Program


TEAK provides college students attending or preparing to attend, 4-year colleges with professional development opportunities through internship experiences and workshops. The goal of the internship is for every College Scholar to learn more about a career field they are interested in pursuing while being a valuable resource to their host company. TEAK works closely with the Scholars and participating companies to ensure that the most compatible candidates are presented for consideration. Hiring decisions are at the discretion of the host company. Once hired, TEAK monitors job performance and provides ongoing support to the intern and host companies. Each internship is designed by the host company according to its needs.

 

A typical internship will include:

  • Hourly salary of minimum wage or higher
  • 6-10 week commitment over the summer months
  • 35-40 hour work week
  • A designated supervisor
  • Job duties and responsibilities appropriate to the company

“I’m so grateful to have had this intern during the summer. She was extremely helpful and became an asset especially since my area at work truly needed the extra hands. She was proactive and displayed excellent analytical skills. She went beyond what she was assigned to do and it made my review process easier and more efficient. I loved having her.”
