INVEST IN AN INTERN
"Internships let you test out a potential employee while making a significant impact on a young professional"
Nearly all of BJU’s over 65 majors offer opportunities for students to participate in an internship. Click HERE for a complete list of BJU’s undergraduate majors.
- Interns are a year-round source of highly motivated pre‐professionals
- They bring new perspectives to old problems
- The visibility of your organization is increased on the BJU campus
- Internships are a proven, cost‐effective way to recruit and evaluate potential employees
- You can find quality candidates for temporary or seasonal positions and projects
- Interns can free up your professional staff to pursue more creative projects
- Interns are a flexible, cost‐effective work force not requiring a long‐term employer commitment
- Your image in the community is enhanced as you contribute your expertise to educating the future workforce
Approved Internships will contain the following elements:
- The internship must take place in a structured work environment (cannot be remote or virtual).
- A typical internship requires a minimum of 120 work hours and must be minimum 6 weeks in length.
- Each intern is supervised/mentored by a professional in his/her respective field.
- Each intern’s work will be evaluated by his/her work supervisor (an evaluation form will be provided).
- Each intern will develop learning objectives and should communicate these learning objectives to their supervisor at the start of the internship.
- Post the opportunity on BJU’s CareerCentral job board
- Consider coming to the annual Career Fair in February
- Reach out to the Career Services staff anytime for guidance or answers to your questions: email@example.com or 864-770-1313 We are glad to help you to maintain an established internship program or to start with your first intern!
Should I pay an intern?
Except for specific limited circumstances the federal government requires all interns be paid at least minimum wage. Most students are also paying for college. We recommend you pay a competitive wage in order to attract the best candidates away from other jobs.
Can I hire an intern to provide us with expertise that we are lacking (e.g. marketing, social media, web design, etc.)?
A true internship involves a professional in the field mentoring the student during the internship. If there is no one qualified to do this, we recommend that you list the opportunity as a part-time job rather than an internship.
The church staffing team in the School of Religion is glad to assist you as you seek pastoral staff or a church staff position.

The best opportunity to recruit students for summer ministries is at the Summer Recruitment Conference hosted by the BJU Center for Global Opportunities.
