FALL 2017 TULANE REMOTE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM


In today’s globally-connected environment, student interns do not need to be physically present at a job site to make a real difference in a company or to gain valuable experience that makes them competitive for future employment opportunities. The Tulane Remote Internship Program (TRIP) 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 8-10 hours a week for companies, Tulane pays for these students to visit their employers in their respective cities at the beginning of the internship, so that they 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 from New Orleans during their academic semesters.




PROGRAM OVERVIEW


  • Applications for Fall 2017 Remote Internships will be open on WaveLink & FreemanLink. 
  • Students must have an active WaveLink or FreemanLink account, as well as an uploaded and approved resume, to submit for these opportunities. 
  • *Note that depending on quantity of resumes being submitted for approval, turnaround time can be several days. Please take this into consideration and submit your resume into WaveLink or FreemanLink as soon as possible. 
  • Remote Interns will receive academic credit for their work 
  • Remote Interns will be able to make a site visit to the company with expenses paid by Tulane 
  • Internships will be project based with a set completion date and objective 
  • Remote Interns will work 6-10 hours per week (additional hours possible based on Tulane approval).
  • 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.
  • Remote Interns will also be assigned a staff supervisor from the company to answer questions along the way, hold Skype/phone check-ins, and serve as a mentor throughout the project
  • Remote Interns will complete a reflection at the end of the semester to secure academic credit
