Frequently Asked Questions for Employers
Q:
How do I get started?
A:
To get started, complete the Off-Campus Internship Request Form. Then, please email, fax or mail the completed
form to
the Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE) Program office.
Q:
Is it possible to not release our company’s contact information to students?
A:
Yes. If your company prefers, the CWEE office can collect student resumes and then forward pre-screened
applicants to your office for scheduling of interviews. This will limit the number of students that are aware
of your opportunity.
Q:
How are students for the internship selected?
A:
After receiving the all of the necessary documents, the CWEE Coordinator will inform faculty from your company’s
industry who will notify interested, well-prepared students about the opportunity. Those students
will then either
send their resume directly to you or if you prefer, the CWEE office can forward student
resumes. Next, you can
interview the interested candidates and select the student that best fits your
needs. Please notify the CWEE office
once your organization selects a student intern.
Q:
Do I need to notify MSJC of the candidate that has been selected?
A:
Yes. The student who has been selected will need to participate in an orientation in order to enroll in the
internship
course for credit. The student is also required to complete registration paperwork. If the student does not enroll for
credit, they are not covered by MSJC’s workmen’s compensation insurance policy and are not affiliated with
MSJC’s CWEE program.
Q:
What date does the internship program start? What date does the internship program end?
A:
The internship program begins on the first day of the semester (Fall, Spring, Summer). The internship ends on the
last day of the
semester (see MSJC’s academic calendar). Students are not allowed to start interning until the
semester begins and they registered for the internship course.
Q:
Do I have to add the student to my company’s workmen’s compensation insurance plan?
A: No. Since the student is enrolling in an internship course, MSJC is able to cover the student under the
district’s
workmen’s compensation insurance. If you need a copy of the plan for your records, please
contact the Business
Services office at (951) 487-3013.
Q:
What are the average hours per week a student must work to earn credit?
A:
The number of hours will depend on the number of units the student is enrolling in for the internship
course and if
the internship is paid or unpaid. Refer to the chart below for the required number of hours

technical and
soft skills. At least once in the semester, the faculty advisor for the internship course will
need to visit the site to
meet with the site supervisor. The site supervisor will need to sign the student’s
timesheets at the end of each
