This 8-credit internship program is intended for students with a general foundation and interest in entrepreneurship, business, social/sustainability entrepreneurship, leadership, and management. It is offered for students who are interested in an internship experience with a business or enterprise involved in the private sector. Students are required to make solid arrangements with an enterprise to shape an internship. This program offers a variety of internship opportunities with enterprises: You must be matched with a specific internship opportunity in the private sector before the program begins. This may require an interview process with an enterprise partner prior to the start of the program. Contact Tamsin Foucrier (email@example.com) to explore opportunities or go to https://www.evergreen.edu/studentemployment/find-job-0. Through this program, students will develop strong links to enterprises involved in the private sector who will host and guide student work.
The program will be taught remotely, with students meeting synchronously for 2.5 hours on Thursday mornings each week. Students will also be expected to complete weekly asynchronous work on Canvas.
Students are encouraged to take the following courses in fall and winter quarter in preparation for this internship programs: Introduction to Professional Skills in fall quarter, and Intermediate Professional Skills in winter quarter. These courses will help prepare students to engage in collaborative teamwork, responsive project management, conflict resolution, effective teamwork, stakeholder facilitation, and other skills during their internship experiences.
Technology required for successful engagement includes high speed internet and a computer (not just cell phone) for Canvas; Online Research; Zoom (including breakout rooms with audio and video); Film streaming services through the Evergreen Library, Netflix and Amazon Prime; and MS Office 365 including One-Drive. If students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they should be pro-active in working with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related or reduced credit. Students can expect remote teaching to be around 3-4 hours of synchronous (scheduled) coursework every week, using Canvas.
