    8. What is an internship, anyway? Survey says… -Johns Hopkins University -Oberlin College -Columbia University -Wikipedia

    9. …Say What!? “Opportunity” “Explore” “Academic” “Career Development” “Pre-Professional” “Mentorship”

    10. Intern’s Bill of Rights Interns work WITH the station, not FOR the station. This means…

    11. Interns are not: • Free Labor • The Department of Labor says that interns, on occasion, may even slow a supervisor’s progress • Your “Go-fer” • Think twice before you ask for that cup of coffee… • Entry-level employees • They’re preparing to climb the ladder, but they haven’t quite stepped on the first rung yet

    12. Interns are: • Volunteers • How would you work with a volunteer? Interns deserve that same respect! • Great resources for young, new perspectives • Great sounding board for ideas • Advocates for your station • These young people can be your biggest advocates in their communities and their (hard to reach) demographics

    13. Interns are: (cont’d) • Eager to say yes! • Interns are looking for a variety of new opportunities and hands-on experiences – everything from filing to observing senior-level meetings. • Looking for guidance, feedback, and ROI • Taking on an intern means investing time in teaching someone how to do a job • After doing their work, interns will expect ROI. Which is to say that interns are… • Potential Employees • Clear goals, learning objectives, and deliverables • Especially important when an internship is for academic credit
