Internship Information for Employers

CBBS students are encouraged to do at least one internship during their Clemson academic experience.

Keys to Successful Internships

  • Internships should be meaningful and productive both for the employer/organization and for the student.
  • Projects that give the student some degree of independence will allow the student’s use of initiative.
  • The intern’s immediate supervisor will have a significant impact on the success of the internship.
  • Developing a short job description will enhance the internship’s success.

Payment

  • Paid internships are typically paid at a commensurate rate that a full-time employee of similar skills and responsibilities are paid.
  • Internships can be full time or part time.
  • Internships can be in spring, summer and fall or just one of these timeframes
