Students placed in internships and businesses hosting interns are required to sign and abide by our Internship Contract.
Throughout the internship experience, students and businesses are also expected to complete the following forms. At the end of the internship, contracts and evaluations are filed in the internship office as a resource for future internships.
Internship coordination and contacts
STEM internships funded by GCC’s DOL grant are coordinated by Bob Barba who does both internal promotion of internships as part of the STEM programs and external outreach to employers to broaden the base of internship opportunities. Bob helps departments match students to internships, pre-screens students and sends their resumes and cover letters to businesses seeking interns. Once a match is made, Bob helps the student with the internship contract and registration.
It is at this point that faculty step in to mentor students and assess the academic merit of their work. Faculty are responsible for entering grades at the end of the internship. While faculty mentors are the primary liaison during the course of an internship, Bob may also keep in touch with participating students and businesses and assess how things are going logistically.
