UVM Career Services strives to create excellent job preparation experiences for all participating students. Accordingly, UVM will not tolerate discrimination or harassment from employers providing internship or recruitment opportunities. If any student believes that s/he has been harassed or discriminated against, they are strongly encouraged to report their concerns immediately to UVM's Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity, as well as to Pamela Gardner Director, of Career Services. It is critical that students let us know when there is a problem so that we can continue to support students having successful experiences.
If, in the determination of the University, there are reasonable grounds to believe that an employer or individual has discriminated against a UVM student, that employer or individual may be barred from further participation in UVM recruitment activities.
As an employer sponsor, your key responsibility is to provide meaningful work to a student. As a supervisor you will provide professional leadership, daily supervision, and project coordination. As a mentor, your task is to assist the student in developing transferable skills, while creating a link from his or her classroom knowledge to real world applications. Work with the student to identify appropriate projects, clear expectations, and areas for further development.
It is the employer's responsibility to:
- Develop a challenging, meaningful opportunity that will both fill a real need for the organization and provide an educational experience for the student.
- Provide supervision and guidance for the student so they may put their knowledge and skills to work - developing skills, refining techniques and learning new processes.
- Monitor the progress of the student throughout the placement to ensure that the student's learning objectives are being met.
- Evaluate the student and provide positive suggestions for future professional growth.
Students choose to do internships for a variety of reasons and with different educational goals depending on their program of study and degree requirements. UVM students have the following options: internships related to their major for academic credit, service learning course-based internships, or career related internships to explore a field of interest. If you would like to discuss how to establish an internship program/position at your business, please don’t hesitate to call Career Services at 802-656-3450.
