Start recruiting before they graduate! If you need seasonal help or an additional set of hands for special projects or a full-time temporary employee, consider hiring a bright, enthusiastic student who is eager to learn more about your organization and industry. You might have needs during the summer months when many of our students are available to work full-time. Maybe you have a special task or project that requires part-time hours during a fall or spring semesters. Possibly you have a formal co-op program where students will work full-time for a semester or two. At La Salle, there are several programs that fall under the ‘umbrella’ of Experiential Education:
Cooperative Education (Co-Op) – typically involves full-time, paid work periods of 3 – 6 months in length. For more details on the full-time co-op program, call or email the Career Services Center. The School of Business also offers the Business Scholars Co-op Program; visit http://www.lasalle.edu/schools/sb/scholars/content.php for more information.
Internships – are usually part-time (8 – 15 hours/week) experiences requiring at least a 3 month work period. While we do not require an employer to pay an hourly wage for an internship, we do welcome and encourage both paid and nonpaid opportunities. Many departments provide academic credit for students participating in an internship assignment. Accordingly, an internship description must be submitted for approval by the appropriate academic department(s). Call or email the Career Services Center for more information.
Summer Jobs – Opportunities available during the summer months may fit into one or both of the programs described above. However, there are many students who seek seasonal employment to gain practical experience and earn money to help cover their college expenses.
La Salle’s Career Services Center will post your co-op, internship and summer jobs to our on-line job posting system –eXplorenet – at no cost for all our students to view.
