A few things to note:

  • Interns must work during regular business hours (M-F between 8a – 5p).
  • We prefer to have people who are able to commit to blocks of time (3-4 consecutive hours or more)
    on a given day because this is a more productive use of everyone’s time.
  • Preferred internship appointments—3 semester hours (135 work hrs.).
