We believe that the most valuable career training begins on the job. The Builder School Senior Internship Program connects our fourth-year students with local businesses in their area of interest, for a weekly internship. This may be a full year at one company, or divided among 2-3 businesses, one day a week. During their internship, students will actively participate in the workplace under a mentor’s guidance.
Businesses will be chosen from within our community, and each internship will include the intern’s participation in professionally related activities. Students will perform all relevant duties and become integral members of the team. This can include specific supervised project work, collaboration with other workers, or independent tasks that the student can perform with minimal supervision, with projects that are specifically designed for the student to develop his or her skills. Training may be in any discipline or involve any profession within their major academic area, so long as the student is an active participant in activities related to that field of study.
Our goal is to allow students to experience being an active member in the workplace, build professional connections, and expose them to new career opportunities for their future.
