  • In your position description, include a section on what interns can expect to learn.
  • Think broadly about what majors might have the skill set you desire.
  • Try to post your internship 3-4 months before you want an intern to start, but be aware that summer intern recruitment in some disciplines (such as tech, engineering, accounting, finance, and consulting) often happens in autumn.
  • Offer pay to help attract a candidate pool up to 4 times larger than if you do not offer pay; increase the investment of all involved; and ensure that students from all backgrounds have equitable access to internships.  For-profit employers should offer pay unless they can meet DOL Guidelines.
