The Career Development Center (CDC) continuously provides internship opportunities to SNHU students by working with various companies who post positions on SNHU Recruit, our free online job and internship database.
Why should employers participate?
- To provide a good source of personnel for your organization.
- To enhance company relations with SNHU and the CDC.
- To increase cost-effectiveness of recruitment and training.
- To identify students you may hire after graduation, while providing an educational experience.
- To develop the diversity of your company through the numerous undergraduate and graduate programs SNHU offers.
How can employers participate?
The CDC is constantly seeking quality internship placements for its students. We encourage employers whose needs meet our placement periods to list openings through SNHU Recruit. Students begin to search for internships as early as six months prior to the beginning of their internship, and thus, employers should begin posting positions well in advance. The number of hours and specific schedule that a student will work during an internship is negotiated between the employer and the student, but must allow for the student’s academic schedule. Employers can choose to have paid or unpaid interns. If you choose to have unpaid interns, please register to be pre-screened by the NHDOL as an intern employer.
What are the responsibilities of the employer?
Employers do not need to have a prior internship training program in place. The CDC can help you develop a formal internship that will meet the learning objectives of students as well as your work requirements. These positions should allow students to develop their skills and learn about the working environment while receiving appropriate levels of supervision. The internship work must also be related to the individual student’s major. Employers are asked to allow an onsite visit by a CDC counselor or faculty member. You will also be asked to complete two evaluations of the student's work during the internship. Please review the Internship Site Supervisor Handbook to learn more.
Students must complete the search process and secure their internship by December 1 for the spring semester and by April 21 for the summer and fall semesters.
