If you are a business owner who is looking for new, energetic and skilled employees, you will find an excellent resource in the Craig School of Business student intern program. CSB interns are full of knowledge fresh from their education and are motivated to begin their career experience.  As employers searching for interns, you will be in control on intern’s rate of pay and hours and develop learning objectives for your intern to follow as guidelines for their experience and your expectations. You will also be required to supply the intern with two evaluations every semester.

CSB interns provide business owners with valuable assistance in many areas, including retail management, marketing analysts, human resources assistants, claims processors, and more.  Contact our Intern Coordinator for more information about how CSB can assist you in finding the perfect intern for your company.
