Establishing Goals and Objectives

Many employers have an idea of what they're looking for when it comes to having a student intern at their organization. Determining how success will be measured helps develop effective goals and objectives.

From an intern's perspective, goals and objectives should be strong enough to provide a marketable experience for their résumé. From an employer's perspective, the goals and objectives should be relevant to the organization's mission.

Goal vs. Objectives—Defined

Goal: As the intern, what will they accomplish by the end of the internship?

Objective: What are the measurable steps to achieve each goal? How are they applying principles and theories learned in the classroom? How are they demonstrating and articulating career-based skills?

If assistance is needed with establishing effective goals and objectives, you may work with the Department Faculty Internship Coordinator.
