At the end of the semester, your supervisor will receive an Internship Evaluation. Interns are rated on a scale of 1 to 4 in the following key areas: dependability, professionalism, oral and written communication, effectiveness with technology, working with a team, interpersonal skills, leadership, ability to solve problems, ethical conduct, quality of work, initiative, motivation, overall strengths, and recommendations for improvement.
Internship supervisors are asked to review the evaluation with the intern. Your supervisor’s evaluation is factored into the final grade of students who are taking the internship for credit. Evaluations are kept by The Career Center who will review all evaluations to identify any issues that need to be addressed. If your internship supervisor has not completed an evaluation of your performance within two weeks of your last work day, you should request a time this will be completed and contact your career advisor. The feedback provided by your supervisor is very important to your continued growth, both personally and professionally.
During the evaluation meeting with your supervisor, listen carefully to understand what he or she thought went well in the assignment and what you might have done differently. Understand that the evaluation is meant to provide feedback that you can apply to your professional development. Ask questions to clarify any points that may not be clear to you. If needed, schedule time with your career advisor to discuss the feedback provided by your supervisor. This will help you understand what you need to work on to improve your performance in the future
