The student and mentor should
establish the types of observation and work the student will be
performing. The student should give the mentor the letter of
introduction about the program if it has not already been sent in the
mail. The student should make it clear that the goal of the
internship, in addition to gaining work experience, will be to
create a product and portfolio that demonstrate what the student has learned
about the job.
Interview and Interview Evaluation Form Explanation
The mentor the student chooses may be a friend of the student or his/her parents, but the first meeting should be conducted in the same way one would meet an employer at a business. The student should dress formally and should bring along his/her cover letter and a copy of his/her résumé. The student should request ahead of time that the mentor conduct a brief interview as practice for getting an actual job. The student should try to speak well and follow the rules for effective interviewing that we cover in class during the practice group interviews
After the interview, the mentor should fill out the interview evaluation form. The student will return the form to the teacher and be given a grade for its completion. The grade will not be affected by the comments on the form. The form is simply feedback for the student on how well he/she interviews.
