Departments at Washburn work with internships in different ways. The departments of education, social work, allied health, and the School of Nursing place interns as part of the required academic program. For other departments, students locate their own internships. Some departments require internships, others do not.
To hire an intern, please first post the internship on BodJobs. If the internship is specific to a particular major, Career Services will forward to the department for further distribution to students in that department after the internship is posted.
Remember that you need to follow fair and equitable recruitment practices, which includes making your internship available to all qualified applicants. Posting on BodJobs will fulfill that requirement. Directly contacting a faculty member will not. Most departments will refer you back to us to post your internships on BodJobs.
Washburn expects internships to meet the definition of internship as developed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) as linked below. Not all part-time opportunities will qualify as internships! Please be sure that you are in compliance with U.S. Department of Labor regulations regarding internships.
UNPAID INTERNSHIPS ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED in light of recent litigation.
