TULANE REMOTE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM


The Tulane Remote Internship Program (T.R.I.P.) allows undergraduate students an opportunity to work for national companies while in New Orleans throughout the fall and spring academic semesters. In addition to working 6-10 hours a week for their employers, Tulane pays for the selected interns to visit their employers' respective cities and offices at the beginning of the internship. This way, remote interns can meet with their teams, supervisors, and get a feel for the physical culture of the company. The purpose of this program is to allow students to get further exposure into industries they are interested in, as well as make themselves more competitive for summer internships through adding on work experience during their academic semesters.


FALL 2017 PROGRAM OVERVIEW


Interested students should review the following in detail prior to applying. 

 

Approved Resumes Required in Handshake:Students must have an active Handshake account HERE, as well as an uploaded and approved resume in your account, to submit for these opportunities. There is a 24 hour turnaround once you submit your resume for approval and/or edits to be sent back. It’s imperative that you follow our resume guidelines HERE (Non-Business) and HERE (Business). Non-Business students are welcome to use the Business templates as well. If your resume requires edits or has mistakes, the turnaround cycle will reboot and this may impact your chances of being considered. You can upload your resume into your account ANYTIME, so it’s best to take care of that first while you work on your cover letters for the internships you plan to submit for.  

Academic Credit: Remote Interns will not receive payment, but will receive one academic credit (to be applied to the following semester) upon successful completion of your internship and required reflection paper. For second semester seniors, adjustments can be made so that the credit is applied to your current semester. 

Site Visits during Fall Break: Unless otherwise noted in the individual internship description, Remote Interns will be required to make a site visit to your employer’s office and city during Fall Break. All expenses will be paid for by Tulane. Applicants should not make alternative plans for Fall Break until September 29th, or possibly before then if confirmed you have not been selected for a Remote Internship.

Logistics: Remote Interns will work 6-10 hours per week for 2 months. Remote Interns will have the option to, or will at the employer’s request, work remotely out of the Tulane Career Center during office hours. Remote interns will have set weekly hours, check in and out of work, and complete weekly hour logs. You will have an assigned supervisor from the company who will answer questions along the way, hold Skype/phone check-ins, and serve as a mentor throughout the project.
