Internship Overview

Internships are a requirement for graduation from AOIT. One course credit is earned for completion of an internship. A student’s internship should consist of a significant technology component, but does not necessarily have to be a technology position. Opportunities should be solicited by parents, students, neighbors, AOIT director(Ms. Robinson), the AOIT Advisory Board, or another reliable source. The sole goal of completing an internship is to explore career options and aspirations.

Student Benefits

The student gains many invaluable skills and experiences from completing an internship. These advantages include: application of talents and information learned from AOIT program; reinforcement of good work and professional habits; the opportunity to earn money in a workplace environment; gaining usable experience to add to a resume; and building contacts and references for future careers outside of the academic world.

Internship Basics

All internships must meet certain criteria:

A minimum of 80 prior to May of 2022 is required. This is a change for the class of 2022. 135 hours are required in the future. 

Internships may be completed as a full- or part-time position during summer months, or could be performed as a part-time endeavor during the school year.

It is encouraged that all interns receive some kind of compensation, whether that is in the form of an hourly wage, a stipend, a laptop, scholarship, or another benefit. This is a change for the class of 2022. In the future this will be a requirement. 

The intern must utilize technology within their internship; this could be a great selling point for companies lacking a strong IT department. At least 50% of the 80 required hours must be related to technology.

Reasonable expectations should be placed upon both the student and the supervisor, and the relationship between these two should be one similar to that of a mentor, in which the student is guided through their work experience.

The student should expect periodic reviews, including a site visit, blog posts, and a formal assessment/evaluation upon the completion of hours.

Finding an Internship

Finding an internship can be overwhelming, but there are several ways in which to do so.

Tapping into a personal network is the best way to go: ask around in your neighborhood, your parent’s workplace, your friend groups, your clubs, and more. Many opportunities go unnoticed simply because of the lack of people that learn about them. All you have to do is ask!

For internships communicated through the school or the AOIT Advisory Board, check your email and the job board postings on a regular basis. If one catches your eye, respond via email or whatever communications are listed in the post. Following sign up, you will be notified of the interview process.

If you already have a job, you can turn it into your internship. Just make sure you meet the basic requirements listed above, including the technology component. Talk to your supervisor and give Ms. Robinson their contact information. The transition from job to internship should introduce something new for the student.
