Your Organization's Investment in Tampa Bay

Hosting a USF Department of English intern is an investment your organization can make in the local economy and job pool. Your support ensures that USF students have real-world experience as well as the academic credientials to succeed in a professional communications career. Our program, in turn, stays acquainted wiith the employment needs of area businesses and organizations, and therefore can model the communications program around those needs.

Stay at the Top of the Technology Slope

Students in the Professional Writing, Rhetoric, and Technology Program at USF are acquainted with the latest tools and technology developed to moke business more viable and efficient. Interns can leverage their classroom knowledge in the context of your daily business and ensure that your enterprise is up-to-date both in terms of tools and technology.

Students in the Literature or Creative Writing Program can bring a new dimension to your content management, including Web-based and social media material. Their abilities in critical thinking, organization, and interpretation can advance your organization's document flow and mission-critical procedures.

Audition New Talent

Sponsoring an intern is one of the best ways to evaluate potential employees without making a long-term commitment in advance. Our interns generally enter the job market shortly after the internship experience, and welcome job offers from organizations already acquainted with their talents and abilities.

Develop Current Employees

By directing and managing an intern, members of your existing staff have the opportunity to extend supervisory and managerial experience and to refine their own knowledge of specific tasks and procedures.

Revise Business Practices

Documenting and verbalizing day-to-day work for an intern's benefit can lead to the development of new approaches and more effecient solutions to common problems that otherwise might go unexamined. In addition, interns often provide their own fresh perspective on the way your enterprise works.
