Second-year students enrolled in some Prosser programs will participate in a 15-hour business micro internship. This micro internship experience is designed to provide a platform for each student to develop and hone the skills and knowledge being learned at Prosser in a real-world situation. During the micro internship, students will report directly to the assigned worksite during their regularly scheduled Prosser class time. Students can expect opportunity to not only observe and explore but also to participate in actual hands-on work related to their Prosser training program.
The 15-hour program will be implemented in the first semester of the second year of training. All micro internship experiences are unpaid. While students will be provided actual hands-on work related to their Prosser training program, the micro internship is not focused upon employee productivity, but rather the learning experience for the intern. Students will be required to complete several pre and post-internship classroom activities and assignments to strengthen the experience.
