Internship Frequently Asked Questions

 

Questions about our internship program? Find the answers here.

When can I enroll in the internship class?
In order for your internship to count for class credit students must have completed 75% of their program credit hours prior to enrolling in the class. The internship class has to be approved by the head of the department. Please visit Audrie Osio to obtain the internship application form.

How many hours does internship require?
Typically students work around 20 hours per week at their internship. However, this should be a discussion between the student and internship employer and an agreement of schedule should be settled upon that works for both parties.

Who is responsible for finding internship placement?
Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to find their own internship. They can also be found on the department website www.austincc.edu/hospmgmt under Internships or under Careers.

If I am pursuing multiple degrees/certificates do I need to complete multiple internships?
No, we do not require students to complete an internship for each; however, we will give you credit for one internship only.

If I find an internship prior to semester can I start logging hours?
Yes, students are able to start logging internship hours prior to the semester with written permission from the head of the department. We understand that the industries do not run on semesters and we do not want the students to miss out on a great opportunity.

Can I work at my internship when school is not in session (ex. Spring Break)?
Yes, students are able to work during these “off” times and the department supports this as being an excellent time to gain valuable experience.

Will I have to attend class and if so how many times?
No, you don’t have to attend class. Please, contact Audrie Osio to obtain the final presentation forms.

Will I be paid for my internship?
This all depends on the internship provider. Some companies are able to pay our interns and some are not. All internship experiences are valuable. Remember that if you go in to an internship and work hard, you may create future job opportunities and connections.
