Tippie Senate Changes Bi-Laws
Tippie Senate voted to change their Direct Admit bi-laws in their meeting on Wednesday, September 24th. The new laws passed unanimously and will be incorporated into the Constitution.
Previously Tippie Senate would select 2 Direct Admit freshman Senators to serve for one semester. They would then need to run in the ordinary election. These Senators do not go through the normal election process and are instead interviewed for the positions. In the past, this has sometimes caused some Direct Admit Senators to not be able to continue in the Senate since they are not yet as affiliated with the college and cannot get the votes.
The new laws would extend the period that the new senators would be in Tippie Senate. Instead of one semester, the Direct Admit Senators will be automatically a part of the Senate for two semesters. This gives them enough time to become more involved with the college and win their spots in the election democratically.
We believe these changes will make our recruitment process fairer and we are very proud of the recruitment committee for working hard to make these changes.
If selected, the next step in the process would be a short interview.
Internships are work-related learning experiences that provide students, new graduates, and career changers with an opportunity to gain important knowledge and skills in a career related field. As a career builder, internships are a chance to gain exposure to career fields of interest without making a permanent commitment. There are many resources available for finding an internship, including: internship online databases, books such as the Internship Bible, classified ads, networking with professionals and alumni from your college, etc.
All experiences related to a particular internship or job can be included on a resume. As a student, relevant coursework, co-curricular activities, community services, volunteer experiences, and previous internships and jobs can also be included on a resume. Again, it is the relevant skills and experience that employers are looking for.
All Internships Completed for Credit Must be Unpaid:
College credit is granted by the academic institution and it does not prohibit employers from paying interns a fair wage or stipend. Colleges generally encourage and support employers to pay for work completed regardless if it’s being done for credit or not. Students interested in receiving credit for an internship will often do one or more internships for credit during fall and/or spring semester and then do a not-for-credit internship during summer break.
There is no Difference Between Doing an Internship During Fall or Spring Semester or Doing an Internship for Summer:
Usually colleges require that students pay tuition for summer internships for credit. The amount will depend on the number of credits received and the costs associated with credit at a particular college. Internships completed during fall or spring semester usually are rolled into the regular tuition.
What is the Difference Between Doing a Summer Internship and Working at a Summer Job:
Ultimately internships should include some form of training along with direct supervision of the work involved. The purpose of an internship is to introduce and train for a particular job or gain experience in a particular career field. Summer jobs are done mainly for compensation and usually include more of an entry-level position such as cashiers, lifeguards, ride attendants, camp counselors, or working at a retail store, restaurant or resort.
