“My internship really helped me to finalize my decisions
to study architecture in college. I am grateful I was able to
have this experience to help me make the best choice for my future.”
K.T., Architecture Intern
|A formal interview is conducted at the selected
internship site with a designated mentor. Once the intern is
accepted by the mentor, the duration of the internship is established.
It can be full or part time for one semester or in the summer
for a minimum of six weeks. The interns spend their entire internship
on site and outside of the classroom exploring personal career
goals by working with successful professionals. An individualized
program is designed with the mentor in order to develop a mutually
positive experience for both the intern and the mentor.
The interns gradually assume duties commensurate with their
interests, abilities, and values. As their skills advance, they
take on greater responsibilities and become important members
of the professional environment. As an integral component of
the internship process, monthly group seminars for all interns
are conducted by Daphne Gregory and Associates, LLC, and are
designed to guide interns in exploring and understanding specific
career skills. Additionally, the seminars include discussions
that encourage intern feedback and the sharing of information.
