Message from Binta Brown, SFA Director of Career Services:
In an effort to assist local businesses who are interested in hiring SFA interns, I have provided a quick and easy internship description form that will hopefully save them time and simplify the process of writing up internship descriptions/postings. Once the job description is created, it will serve as a great guide for the local business to create a job posting on Jobs4Jacks. By creating a job posting on Jobs4Jacks, SFA students and Alumni will have the ability to view local internship opportunities as well as full-time and part-time employment opportunities.
Should they have any questions or need assistance with completing this form or posting positions through their Jobs4Jacks account, we will be happy to assist them.
With Lumberjack Pride,

Internship Description FORM
How to create a job description for an internship:
Below you will find a helpful guide in order to generate a job description for your new internship position. You do not need to fill out all of the sections listed below, however you will want to include as much valuable information about this position and your company in order to attract your next intern.
Internship Title: (Example: Graphic Design Intern, Marketing Intern, Communication Intern)
Organization Name: (EFG Inc.)
Location: (City, State)
Work Schedule: (Fulltime, Part-Time; Summer, Spring, Fall)
Describe what your company does. This is very important information and will help the reader gain valuable information about what company they will intern with. You can also list a brief statement about what the intern will do during their time with your company. You can list who will be their direct supervisor as well as whether or not the internship will be paid or unpaid.
If the internship is unpaid, you will really need to sell your company to the potential intern by listing all of the exciting and new tasks that your company is embarking in. Your goal here is to make the student excited about the internship and all of the wonderful information they will gain from your establishment.
Here you will list what the intern will be expected to do as well as any special projects they will be in charge of completed. Typically, you will want to list between 5-10 responsibilities; it is generally a good idea to remain flexible in order to meet both your needs as well as the intern’s needs.
List what you would like to see in an intern here. Items such as GPA, Degree, and Classification are all things to consider. Remember to use the terms “prefer” rather than “require” as this could limit your options.
How to apply:
Almost the most important piece of information for the future intern to know is how to apply. If you post your internship through Jobs4Jacks, you will have the option to have students apply through this system and an email will be sent to you containing their resume and other required documents.
If you would like for the student to apply through your website or by contacting you directly, please indicate that in this section.
