I am a home-based business, can I offer an internship?
Home-based businesses typically will not qualify to participate in the Cooperative Work Experience Program. Without at least an initial face-to-face meeting between the student and employer, true mentoring may not occur. In certain circumstances where an intern would work remotely for the home-based business, CWEE will allow the employer and student to meet initially or regularly at the college in a professional environment.
What do I do if an intern isn't working out?
If the intern is not working out, or a situation arises, meet with the intern directly to discuss concerns and plan to correct the situation. As a mentor, you can set goals with the intern to achieve desirable work habits. If you want to move forward with termination, notify the intern and contact the CWEE office with your decision at 661.362.3309 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
