Internships

Posting your Internship

When should I send my posting?

We accept internship postings throughout the year - but students intern during fall, spring and summer terms (dates vary slightly each year - see our academic calendar).  If you would like a fall intern, it is best to send your posting by late July/early August.  Spring internships should be sent by November/December. Summer internships vary depending on organizations, but most send and advertise their summer internships in January-April.

What do I include in my posting?

A well-written internship posting should include the following:

  • A brief description of the organization
  • A listing of intern responsibilities and tasks
  • Overview of learning opportunities available to the student by participating in your internship.
  • Time frame (Nazareth interns earn credit by semester and must spend 10 weeks AND 120 hours total at their sites as a minimum)
  • Paid or unpaid? (for-profit internship sites are encouraged to read this position statement by the National Association for Colleges and Employers)
  • Instructions on how to apply (most internship sponsors prefer for students to email them a resume)

Handshake for Employers

Nazareth College uses a web-based job search engine called Handshake for employers to post full and part-time positions and internships.

  • Click "Sign up for an account" and select "Employer". Fill in all of the required information about your organization.
  • Once you have set up your account, select "Post a Job" to begin posting your opportunities.
  • We will approve your notice once you submit it (usually within 24 hours) and it will then be posted live for our students.
  • If we have any questions about your posting, we'll contact you. You can use the same system to post full-time opportunities for our students.

If you have questions about Handshake or need assistance in creating an internship description, please contact the Professional Internship Program at internships@naz.edu.
