Working in an Internship Position
Performance Review Process
The Career Centre works with the employer to oversee the performance and development of each student on an internship through this process:
- Learning Agreement (once per internship)
- First Term Call (once per internship)
- Work Term Report (for each work term during your internship)
- Supervisor Evaluation (for each work term during your internship)
- Last Term Call (once per internship)
Performance for each Internship Work Term Course undertaken will be assigned a Pass or Fail grade by a Faculty Committee/Coordinator in the student’s program of study.
To receive a Pass grade, the student must fulfill the requirements of the work term by the deadlines (as detailed below) as well as meet the requirements agreed upon with the employer. Students who do not submit the required documents on or before the deadline will receive a Failing grade.
= Must be completed for every work term (for each 4-month academic term that you are on internship)
Definition of an Internship: Each time you start a job with a new employer, you are starting a new internship (i.e. most students complete an internship lasting 4-16 months, although it may be possible for students to participate in internships of shorter duration with different employers). All steps below in green must be completed during every internship position you have with a different employer.
Definition of a Work Term: Each time an academic term (Fall, Winter or Summer) starts, you are starting a new work term (beginning in September, January or May). A student may complete one or more work term(s) with the same employer (e.g. 12 months with one employer would be 3 work terms) or with different employers (e.g. 4 months with one employer and 8 months with a different employer would still be considered 3 work terms). All steps below in blue must be completed for every academic term that you are on internship.
