Internship Advisory Council

This Council was formed to advise Biola’s Center for Career Development on activities related to internships and work experience. The second annual meeting is slated for August 2013. The Council is comprises alumni professionals, faculty, student leaders, and Career Development staff representing a wide spectrum of job functions, industries, and work experience.

– – – – – – – – – – –

2012-2013 ACTION ITEMS, 6/27/12 MEETING

  1. Obtain a place on agenda at the Council of Instructional Deans Meeting (basis is Biola’s Aspiration #4: Produce graduates well prepared for their professional careers). Discuss integration of career preparation in each major. (Lead: Jeanie Jang – conversation with June Hetzel, Larry Strand & Doretha O’Quinn)
    • Are faculty incentivized/compensated to advise interns in every major? How should Biola approach advising internships in a more far-reaching way? How can we create a systematic process for building internships into all academic programs? On the one hand, some faculty are compensated for an 8 hour a week student advising requirement, which could be used for internship advising; on the other hand, some faculty are not required to have 8 hours a week of student advising. And some faculty, such as in Sociology, have no incentive whatsoever to invest their time on students’ career development.
    • Career development workshops are currently optional. Propose that courses or programs require attendance at, say, 2-3 career development workshops/events.
    • Incorporate resume writing, networking, mock interviews, etc. into curriculum of each major.
    • Debrief internship experiences more formally, and document them in a systematic way.

  2. Job shadowing alumni. (Lead: Jeanie Jang – conversation with Rick Bee in Alumni Relations)
  3. Create database of employers with internship opportunities. (Fulfilled through Biolalink. However, Career Development is expanding its reach to alumni, parents, faculty [& internship coordinators] to increase opportunities & point more users to Biolalink; Lead: Jeanie Jang)
  4. Publish reviews of employers and internships – similar to Glassdoor.com. (Leads: Mark Matthes, Tiffany Lee, Tim Brandon)
  5. Publish stories of students/alumni with good intern experiences. (Leads: TBA. Ask internship coordinators to provide lists of students – Sandy Harden & Tiffany)
    • Market stories on websites, through UCM, etc.

  6. Visit intro level major classes with sophomores/juniors to announce specific internships in relevant major; job shadowing; demo Biolalink; highlight job list widgets by dept (Biolalink branded); this may replace FYS visits. (Leads: Sandy Harden & Tiffany Lee)

CHARTER

Purpose

To advise Biola’s Center for Career Development on activities related to internships and work experience.

Objectives

• To address opportunities that can impact students’ career preparation.
• To identify curricular and co-curricular improvement opportunities that will better prepare graduates for the real world of work.
• To build relationships between Biola and organizations that may lead to internship and employment opportunities.

Relationship of the Internship Advisory Council to Biola’s Center for Career Development

It is the role of the Center for Career Development to enact policy and make suggestions to other departments within Biola University. The Advisory Council offers recommendations to the Center and provides information relevant to improving the quality of career preparation so that students are well equipped to enter their chosen careers. The Council members serve as a bridge between outside organizations and Biola University to promote constructive change.

Membership Composition

The Advisory Council will consist of a cross-section of employer representatives as well as students, alumni professionals, and faculty. The Director and Associate Director of the Center for Career Development will serve as members also. Members are volunteers who possess expertise in various areas of the career spectrum.

Term

Term of membership is yet to be decided, but it will likely last anywhere from one to three years.

Moderator and Recorder

The Associate Director of the Center for Career Development will serve as the moderator; the Administrative Assistant of the Center will serve as the recording secretary for each meeting.

Meetings

The Council will meet one or two times per year. An agenda will be used and minutes of each meeting will be kept. Recommendations passed by a majority vote and reports from the Council will be submitted to the moderator for dissemination to relevant University parties. Members who are absent from meetings without reasonable cause from two successive meetings will be considered to have resigned their seats.
