In order for an internship to be a meaningful experience, students should be given adequate supervision and be included in doing real, substantive work. There are plenty of great internship opportunities in the world, but the intention behind the Creative Media Internship Program is that students will make meaningful connections with Hampshire alumni and friends who are invested in their growth and development. As much as possible, try to find opportunities for your intern to learn new skills, meet people in the industry, and observe professionals at work. Give constructive feedback when necessary, and positive feedback when earned. If you have any issues or challenges with your intern, please contact our office immediately. We will do our best to help you sort out the situation and find a positive resolution.
Hampshire interns are required to conduct a mid-internship check-in, as well as request a final evaluation. Below are links to the forms you will need. Please read below for more detail on how to structure an internship and how these requirements fit into the experience.
In order to complete the internship experience, please write a final evaluation for your intern. This will give them valuable information about their performance as well as allow them to include the internship on their transcripts. Please print your evaluation on company letterhead if available, and make sure to include the following information:
