Post University Internship Program Overview
Post University’s Internship Program is a win-win opportunity for both our students and the companies that hire them. Our students are engaged in courses of study focused on preparing them for careers in their majors, so they not only will contribute to your organization, but also they’ll gain valuable work experience. We encourage you to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about this program.
Some guidelines for ensuring the internship is a mutually beneficial experience:
- An Internship assignment must provide a learning experience in an area that complements the student’s major field of study. The student should be regarded as a regular employee with respect to conditions of work. Pay should be commensurate with the assigned responsibilities. The Internship student is not eligible for unemployment benefits. Unpaid internships are accepted; however, the amount of students applying generally decreases. Most of our students have to work and an unpaid, part-time position may not be realistic for many. The US Department of Labor guidelines in determining whether an internship is to be paid or unpaid can be reviewed here.
- The employer should provide job training and supervision. The student should have an orientation to company rules and expectations. Routine feedback by an experienced supervisor should be provided on a regular basis.
- The position must be budgeted to last the duration of the assignment, which is 120 hours for a three credit internship, approximately 15-20 hours a week. The student’s class schedule needs to be taken into consideration when determining the internship work schedule. It can extend beyond the required hours at the employer’s discretion and agreement with the student.
- The coordinator of the program or faculty member should be permitted to conduct a site visit, if requested, at your convenience.
- If a student’s performance is unsatisfactory, the employer should contact the Center for Career and Professional Development at [email protected] in an attempt to resolve any problems before termination is considered. The Center for Career and Professional Development and the student’s internship faculty will work with the employer to come to a satisfactory conclusion for all.
- The host employer should supply the resources, equipment, and facilities that support the internship assignment.
- Students who are deemed qualified to fill the posted position are referred to you under the provision that you, as the employer, make the hiring decision. In no way does Post University act as an agent of its students or take responsibility for their actions or consequences of those actions while employed through the Internship program.
- International Students and Internships – International students with F-1 Visas may work a paid or unpaid internship in their major before graduation. They may not work a paid part-time job off campus before graduation. After graduation, an F-1 Visa student may work a paid position in their field of major for 12 months. The student is responsible for applying for Optional Practical Training (OPT) and receiving permission from the Federal government before the first day of work.

Connect with Candidates
There are many ways you can connect with student candidates and contribute to your community and the university while you benefit yourself personally and professionally.
Contact [email protected] for inquiries.
- Mentoring a student can be a great way to get your company name known and give back to your community as well as potentially get to know and train a future employee. Mentoring doesn’t need to take up a great deal of your time. Besides face-to-face meetings, you can choose to use other forms of communication with your mentee such as emails, phone conversations or Skype meetings.
- Participate in a Center for Career and Professional Development student event where business partners mingle with and give advice to students, or answer their questions during a panel discussion event.
- Present a workshop on a relevant career related topic to a broader student audience. Develop a relationship with a professor, and create a PowerPoint presentation to show in a workshop to a student audience that is studying relevant subjects to your business.
- Be a guest speaker in a class, an academic club or a campus event. Share your career path experience, an interesting situation, current events, or changes occurring in your field. Share tips about getting promotions, life-work balance or any other practical work related topic. Or give a “primer” presentation on an academic topic related to your business.
- Provide Job Shadow opportunities to students for a workday or more. Select an area of your business that you are comfortable with demonstrating and teaching that would be valuable for the student or a future employee to see with first-hand experience.
- Teach an online class in your discipline. Expand your experiential horizons, broaden your network, learn new technologies and gain new knowledge. Your next employee may be one of your star students.
