Leadership exCHANGE Internships: Supervise 'like a Boss'

Thank you for your partnership & for helping shape young entrepreneurial minds.  


BEST PRACTICE

  • Show an insider's perspective on how start-ups work
  • Invite intern to client meetings 
  • Encourage interaction with the other company team members
  • Create a project that has an end, so they can say "I did that!"

Important Dates for your Calendar

  • 1-5pm every weekday (except 7/25)
  • July 6 start date
  • July 29 end date
  • July 29 11:45AM-1PM  Final Lunch & Awards Ceremony @ HQ (Please make plans to attend) 

 

 

Academic Note:  Students are expected to perform up to your level of standards.  They get class credit for the work they do for you, so if it is sub-par, please let us know.  I'll do periodic check-in with you to see if you need anything, but please reach out.
