Dear Prospective Hosts:
Thank you for your interest to participate in our Internship Program.
We have a few formalities to review before proceeding with the forms to recruit an intern.
Liability Insurance coverage for student: The Chancellor's Office requirements for "managing risk" includes internships too. So CSU campuses must request that liability insurance coverage be provided for students while interning at the host's place of business. Check with your insurance carrier to see if you can augment your insurance to include an intern for a specified time.
Worker's Compensation: Worker's Compensation is required by state law, and to be provided for students while interning at host's place of business.
Course Objectives: Your internship opportunity must provide the student with appropriate applied learning objectives that merits a credit value of 4 units as the student is required to enroll in an internship course while interning at your company. Continue with the steps below by completing two forms needed to recruit an intern(s).
Paid Internships? Under the Department of Labor - Fair Labor Standards Act, and pursuant to the August 10, 2010 memo to HR Directors and CEOs of companies from the CBPA Dean [PDF] the subject of unpaid internships by the private sector has been addressed. Considering our obligation, we encourage for-profit companies to offer a paid internship.
STARTING THE PROCESS - IT'S EASY!
Two Forms To Complete and Submit

accepted as your signature).

STEP THREE: Return the above completed forms to Angie Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll print copies of your flyer to have available for students. We'll also post your internship opportunity on this website, and send out an email announcement to our students.
Next: Interviews, Selection & Notification
STEP FOUR: As you receive student responses with their
resumes and cover letters, contact them directly to schedule
STEP FIVE: Once you've made your selection, e-mail Angie Webb at email@example.com with the name of the student, their phone number and e-mail address. Direct students to contact our office for their next step.
The Internship Experience: Beginning to End
STEP SIX: The selected student is to notify the CBPA Internship Office, and follow the procedures to be enrolled in a 575 or 675 internship course. There are some forms required with the internship course, including a few for you as the supervisor to complete (two needed at the beginning, and one at the end of the project). Your intern will provide you with these forms, as well as turn them in to us.
You can then discuss a start date with your intern (keeping
in mind the quarter start date). It's also important that
you provide an orientation meeting with your intern, as
well as an overview of their agreed upon schedule and their
assignments. Also conduct a brief verbal review mid-way
through the internship period to let the intern know how
STEP SEVEN: During the 8th week, the student will remind you to complete the supervisor's evaluation to have ready by the 9th week (Business Evaluation Form) Also, meet briefly with your intern to wrap up any project details by the end of the 10th week. That's it!
If you still have a question to any of the above information, you're welcomed to contact the CBPA Internship Office at 909/537-3581.
We wish both of you a great internship experience!
