Internship Guidelines:

  • Designed to be an educational experience that is primarily for the benefit of the student as they are not paid either by USD Professional and Continuing Education nor the sponsoring organization. 
  • Increase his/her experience as the student looks toward entering a given career field, for example, the event industry.
  • Build the student’s network of contacts for learning about job openings, other organizations, and the professional climate within a city.
  • The intern is not to displace a regular employee of the sponsoring organization, but rather is to work under the close supervision of one or more existing employees.
