Employer Frequently Asked Questions

Expand or Collapse all.

I would like to have an internship posting on your website; how do I do this?

First, you must make sure that your position meets our internship guidelines, which can be viewed here.

Next, fill out an employer inquiry form which can be found here.

Once your posting has been reviewed, and if approved by Mrs. Dietert, we will post it to our website and you will receive a confirmation email.

What if I currently have a posting but want to update or delete it?

If you wish to update your posting, you'll need to send in a new employer inquiry form and job description, which can be found here.

If you want your posting to be deleted, you'll need to email us at mgt_mktinterns@txstate.edu, requesting that it be deleted.

What other posting options do I have?

You are also encouraged to post your internship opportunity on Jobs4Cats through the Texas State Career Services office: http://www.careerservices.txstate.edu/

If you have questions, you may contact Mr. Bruce Howard, Career Advisor, at blh54@txstate.edu.

Do you find an intern for me?

We do not place students in internship positions.  Students will submit their resume and/or company application to the companies they are interested in, just as if searching for a job.  You will invite your choice of candidates for interviews and make the final selection. 

Am I obligated to provide a paid internship position?

No, the internship does not have to be a paid position but it can be; it is completely at the discretion of the company.  Keep in mind, however, that paid internships are typically filled more quickly than non-paid ones.

How many hours should my intern complete?

The internship must be scheduled for a minimum of 10 weeks and 200 job hours during the fall or spring semester or 8 weeks and 160 job hours during the summer. The internship may be either full-time or part-time.

What are my responsibilities as an employer?

Because our internship guidelines require that our credit internships must be beyond the scope of the typical part-time or temporary job, we ask that you ensure that your intern's responsibilities are similar to those of an entry-level employee.  We also ask that you participate in a midterm meeting with your intern and Mrs. Dietert.  Your intern will be responsible for scheduling the meeting, which will be at your business location.  Additionally, we ask that you confirm that your intern has met the required minimum number of hours and work weeks during the semester and complete an end of semester evaluation of your intern.
