College of Communication > Internships > For Internship Providers > Effective Internship Descriptions
Concise, detailed postings will lead to more interested and qualified applicants! Your internship position description should include the following information.
Organization Profile/Position Overview
Describe your organization and internship position with as much detail as possible. You want to depict the environment and illustrate the position as best you can to give the student an accurate idea of what they will be experiencing. This will also help the student to decide if they can picture themselves within your organization, industry and internship position.
Students are excited to work hard and create results, but they also want opportunities that will aid them in their long-term professional development. Students are attracted to companies that care about creating stellar internship experiences. Their perception of your organization and their enthusiasm about the opportunity starts with your description.
Please provide your location in this section, as well. This need not be an exact address; the name of a neighborhood or suburb (Lincoln Park, The Loop, Northbrook, etc.) will suffice. Even if the internship is remote, this helps give students a sense of your organization's home base.
Intern Responsibilities and Learning Objectives
Your position description will be reviewed before it is placed on the internship website. Once your internship has been approved for posting, it will be placed on the website within 48-72 hours. All internship-related materials sent to us are kept for our records, as well as for prospective students to view.
