First Term Call and Last Term Call

First Term Call

When to complete this step: Six to eight weeks into your internship.

Students participate in a First Term Call for each new employer they work with. The call is conducted six to eight weeks into the first work term.  The Internship Coordinator will arrange separate phone calls with the supervisor and the intern, lasting approximately 15 minutes each. This is an introduction and check-in call. There is no preparation needed, but it is a time to clarify expectations and discuss any questions or concerns.

How do I schedule my First Term Call?
The Internship Coordinator will notify you, via email, once appointments are listed online, and you will be asked to choose one of the listed appointments based on both your and your supervisor’s availability.

You are also encouraged to contact the Internship Coordinator at any point during the internship if you have questions or concerns.

Last Term Call

When to complete this step: Last month of the final work term in your internship.

Students completing their final work term will complete a Last Term Call. The Internship Coordinator will arrange separate phone calls with the supervisor and the intern, lasting approximately 15 minutes each. The discussion will focus on the student's performance and the supervisor’s satisfaction, and identify major lessons and strategies for building on that learning upon returning to campus.

How do I schedule my Last Term Call?
The Internship Coordinator will notify you, via email, once appointments are listed online, and you will be asked to choose one of the listed appointments based on both your and your supervisor’s availability.
