Internship and Co-op Assignments

 

As an Intern or Co-op student you are required to complete a few short assignments before you will be issued school credit or have your experience noted on your official transcript.

 

STUDENT REQUIREMENTS

Work Schedule and Site Confirmation

You will need to confirm your work schedule and site location by sending an email to jepiper2@wsc.edu as soon as possible.

 

Mid-Term Evaluation & Final Evaluation

Email notifications will remind you when these evaluations are due. Your email will contain a link that will take you directly to your evaluation within Cat Tracks. You will also receive pop-ups in Cat Tracks notifying you when your evaluations are due.

 

Site or Phone Visit

Depending on where you are located, a site or phone visit will need to be scheduled and completed sometime during your experience. This is usually takes place during the second half of your experience and will last a half hour to an hour. This allows your internship coordinator to see you in action, better understand your role and job responsibilities as well as the company you are working for. If you are working for a newer company or one that is new to our Career Services staff then we may request a company tour if it applies, so we can learn more about the company and help promote it across campus. We also utilize this time to thank your employer for hosting you. If you are located far away then a phone visit will be scheduled and made instead.

 

Final Report

A minimum of a two page report will need to be emailed to jepiper2@wsc.edu within one week of completing your Internship / Co-op experience. View Report Guidelines.

 

Please Note:

Once you are actively enrolled for your experience, you will start to receive emails notifying you of assignment due dates. If you would like to view your personalized schedule before this takes place - you can log into

Cat Tracks - click on “View My Activity” (left hand menu). Click on the “Intern/Co-op” tab and click “view”. This will list all of your intern/co-op information.  At the bottom of the page you will find an Evaluation Information section – that outlines your due dates.

 

EMPLOYER REQUIREMENTS

Your employer will also be required to complete an Employer Evaluation of your performance. So please remind your employer about this one week prior to the end of your experience. They too will receive email notifications with a link to your evaluation. If they do not receive this notification please contact Jessie Piper at jepiper2@wsc.edu or by calling 402-375-7527.
