The University of Cincinnati, Blue Ash Internship Program seeks to connect students with employers in the field of their interest. Students will not only receive academic credit for doing an internship, they will also make valuable contacts in the professional world and have the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom to a work environment. Students will gain crucial, real-world experience that will set them apart and open up more opportunities upon graduation.
It’s a partnership between students, institutions of higher education, and employers that formally integrates students’ academic study with work or community service experience.
An internship should:
Be of a specified and definite duration;
Evaluate each participating student’s performance in the internship position, both from the perspective of the institution and the employer;
Allow students to learn more about their field of interest through observation and direct participation in a job setting;
Assist students in establishing future employment connections;
Allow students to complete substantial projects/tasks that will build on the skills learned in the classroom;
Provide employers with trained, well-screened students who might become future full-time employees.
