The Winter Internship confirmation deadline is January 23—that's soon! If you're not confirmed yet, don't fret! It's not too late to get an awesome internship (and you never know what's going to be an awesome internship!).
Whether or not you've confirmed your internship, here's what you need to know:
1. Dive on in! You might want to think about using next Monday or Friday, when there's no school, to complete the internship process. If you need to contact organizations (check the I-Bank!), do interviews, and confirm your internship, do it today, tomorrow, or next week! If you're already confirmed, you can use the time to conduct an orientation meeting. Parents who are not familiar with the organization should visit the site too. Need ideas? Some students are working at pizzerias, schools, nonprofit organizations, congressional offices, and retail stores. Think of something you're interested in and give it a shot!
for the orientation checklist to help you conduct your orientation meeting!
2. Not confirmed yet & need some help?
In addition to mentors, Liz and Carrie in the Winter Internship office (C302) are available and excited to assist students with securing internships before or after school, at break, and during lunch or SHAM. For priority attention, students should sign up on the C302 office door or set up an appointment over email, but drop-ins are also welcome. Make your appointment or drop by today!
3. "You're hired!"
If you're ready for your star turn on The Field School's Celebrity Apprentice, ...your internship...you'll confirm your internship online using the link on your Winter Internship class page. Here is a link
to a page that shows all of the information students will need in order to confirm their internships. Students, use your Field School email address
to log in to the Whip when completing the confirmation form (Gmail addresses won't work!). Internship host organizations don't have to fill in or sign anything.
4. Permission slip time!
Parents and guardians: you will receive an email from Field within about 24 hours of your child confirming their internship. Please submit a signed copy of the approval/release form within one week of receipt.
And that's it! It's going to be a great Winter Internship this year—and just a little bit of work now will get you set up for a fantastic internship experience! You can do it, and we're here to help!
