Thank you for your interest in hiring an intern from ACU. We appreciate the opportunity for students to use internships to gain experience and to learn more about their chosen field. To learn more about ACU's internship programs, please click on a link below. 

An internship provides students with the opportunity to integrate their course work into their job duties. Therefore, intern projects should be substantive and challenging, requiring problem solving and critical thinking skills, not just filing or making copies. The position should challenge a student beyond his or her current skill set. In addition, a great internship program provides: Access to Contacts and Networks

Interns appreciate opportunities to meet a wide variety of professionals within your organization, attend professional meetings with their supervisor, and referrals to contacts in other organizations. Recognition and Appreciation

When students begin their internship, introduce them to the staff, include them in social activities when appropriate, and most of all give them consistent feedback.The Right Tools

Amenities such as a designated work area, office supplies, the use of a computer and phone, and a company email account should be available to the intern if appropriate. Excellent Supervision

Excellent supervision includes a regular meeting to allow the intern time to ask questions, discuss the internship, organizational culture, etc.
