Internships

Use what you're learning in the classroom in an actual business setting. Our business internship program allows you to work in your chosen field and gain real work experience.
 

Our internships are academically planned and supervised so that you get the most out of your experience. You'll choose an internship program that relates to your major, and we'll guide you through the process during your entire internship process:

Business students must have junior or senior status and get approval for the selected internship from the Director of Internships, Scott Spell.

  1. Begin looking long before the semester starts for possible placement for your internship. Talk to everyone about your internship possibilities
  2. Come to the Director of Internship’s office to discuss what kind of internship you are seeking. The office is located on the second floor of the Rinker Building, office no. 2362.
  3. Check not only your own sources but the resources provided by the Rinker School of Business. Send out your resume to multiple employers. You can also check Monster track on the Palm Beach Atlantic University Career Services Web site.
  4. Register for the internship course (BUSV 4713) to be taken the same semester that you do your internship.
  5. Complete Internship Proposal including a brief detailed description of job assignment and emphasizing any projects you may be assigned during your internship.
  6. Attend class and complete course requirements.
     


The purpose of the internship course is to provide career skill development by working in a professional setting while participating in a structured class. The work component consists of 90 hours with an approved employer, and is enhanced by an RSB course consisting of assignments, threaded discussions, and class meetings. By the end of the internship, students will have: (1) gained real life business experience, (2) learned new skills that will make them more marketable, and (3) developed long-term career and life goals and will know what it will take to accomplish those goals.
