Maintain a Work Log
During a student's internship, the intern’s supervisor at your company should initial the journal/log at the end of each week to track the number of work hours, document the intern's reflections and responses relative to the internship's responsibilities and experiences, and ensure that the intern is provided a variety of management/entrepreneurial experiences.
Evaluate the Internship
Within one week of the completion of the internship, your business must submit to Baylor Entrepreneurship an evaluation of the internship experience and job performance form. A copy of this evaluation will be forwarded to the intern.
