Mentoring and Supervision
Working closely with a supervisor or mentor at a job site is what helps make an internship successful for all. It provides regular opportunities to focus on learning objectives, check-in on projects, and ask questions, and will likely result in an experience that benefits both the student and the employer.
Students may also benefit from the mentor-intern relationship in acquiring new job-related skills, and in developing professional practices in a real-world environment.
Interns can benefit an Employer by offering fresh perspectives, current academic training, creative new ideas, and enthusiasm for their areas of interest.
