internSJC works to increase the quantity and quality of experiential learning in the South Bend Region by encouraging businesses to provide students with real-world experience through internships. Students are encouraged to post their profiles on Indiana’s internship site, IndianaINTERN.net, while employers are encouraged to post internship opportunities.
In partnership with our local colleges and universities, IndianaINTERN.net and the University of Notre Dame’s enFocus program, internSJC grew the number of IndianaINTERN.net internship postings in our region by more than 75% between 2012 and 2014.
If your business is interested in hiring an intern, please post the opportunity on IndianaINTERN.net, or if you need help in starting an internship program, contact Kate Lee at 574.400.4030, or by email.
internSJC's Summer Community Engagement Program (SCEP) immerses interns in the community to show them what the region has to offer. In 2014, through the program, a network of 59 participating interns was created. The interns engaged in planned events and weekly “challenges.” When surveyed at the end of the summer, 79% of responding interns said that they were more likely to accept a full-time position with their summer employer as a result of their internship and SCEP experience.
