business students seeking internship opportunities
The California State University, Sacramento, College of Business
Administration is seeking Sacramento-area employers to provide part-time
internships for undergraduate and graduate business students.
Internships are a win-win for both the student and the employer.
Students receive training in their chosen fields, part-time pay
and academic credit along with the mentoring of the supervisor and
the faculty sponsor. Employers benefit from the enthusiasm, new
ideas and strong motivation students bring. And it provides an excellent
avenue to recruit new talent.
Interested employers follow a few simple steps:
the student affairs office in the College with a completed internship
position description form (available online at www.csus.edu/cba/studentaffairs).
The work should be degree enhancing for the student, with responsibilities
similar to an entry-level position in the student's area of concentration.
No more than 10 percent of the work time should be devoted to
clerical tasks such as photocopying, answering phones, telemarketing,
door-to-door sales or filing.
hourly pay or regular salary for the student.
a minimum of 10 hours per week for an undergraduate student and
15 hours per week for a graduate student for the duration of a
the name of the person who will supervise the student. (The supervisor
may not be a relative or spouse of the student.)
a statement to the faculty sponsor at the end of the semester,
indicating whether the student completed the assignment and achieved
the learning objectives. The supervisor also needs to be available
for consultations with the student and the faculty sponsor.
an internship position description form is received by the College
of Business Administration, it is posted both electronically and
hard copy for students. Students who are interested in an internship
contact the employer about the position and set up an interview.
The College offers a degree in business with concentrations in:
accountancy, accounting information systems, finance, human resource
management, international business, management information systems,
marketing, operations management, real estate and land use affairs,
risk management and insurance, and strategic management.
It's not too early to consider setting up an internship for the
fall 2002 semester: Classes start Sept. 3 and end on Dec. 20.
