Participating in a Technical Communication Internship
Abstract:Although the benefits of internships seem clear, the path to participating in a successful technical communication internship experience is not always clear, and advice is scattered across many articles and Web sites. If you are a current student or a practitioner who is considering a return to school, you might have questions about finding internship opportunities, evaluating your options, and getting the most out of the experience. If you are a new internship coordinator, you might wonder how to manage 30-50 separate internships over the course of a semester. If you are an employer, you might have questions about how to establish an effective internship program at your company. Because an internship is a three-way partnership, this tutorial is divided into three sections providing advice to the major participants in this collaborative partnership: students, internship coordinators, and agency sponsors.
