You are expected to be conscientious and perform in the best way that you can. 2. Enriched Academic Learning: The internship is part of your academic curriculum, intended to supplement the more theoretical learning of books and classroom. It is this learning with which you are earning academic credit. This learning requires you to be a participant and observer. You will be asked to observe continually and closely, and to reflect critically on what you have observed in relationship to you broader academic and professional interests. It also requires you to go beyond the basic job requirements and do such things as read background material and other documents available in the office, attend staff meetings, and raise questions about your experience. Finally it requires you to articulate your observations and analysis in the written work you submit. 3. Professional Development. The internship allows you to develop knowledge skills and personal contacts that will contribute to your own career development. It offers you the opportunity to see how you like working in the field/organization of your choice, to obtain some critical experience that is required of many jobs. It also gives you the opportunity to learn about employment picture in this field to gain invaluable recommendations from people in the field, and to begin your own network of contacts who will help you gain access to this field.
