Fresh Perspectives in the Field
Honors College students are curious, driven, high-achieving students who have benefitted from being immersed in Mason’s dynamic and diverse environment. Northern Virginia and D.C.-area businesses and organizations won't find a more competetive hiring pool when looking for interns. Those who collaborate with the Honors College to employ and educate our students will gain valuable human resources.
Benefits to Partners
Community partners help cultivate prospective new employees from our pool of highly motivated students.
- Collaborate and work in teams.
- Read and think analytically.
- Are comfortable listening to and exchanging ideas with those who have different perspectives.
- Communicate clearly when speaking and writing
- Are proficient in digital, audiovisual, and other media
- Identify pending issues and pro-actively seek solutions.
Partners who employ our interns commit to mentorship and maintaining an active role in the educational process.
Internships should be enriching experiences. Our expectation is that clerical work will be limited to no more than one-third of any intern's duties. The focus should be on long-term analytical and problem-driven projects.
Students who participate in semester- and year-long internships are typically paid for their work. If you don't have the resources to support paid interns, consider working with us to develop a shorter-term project that fits your needs and resources.
