Society of Human Resource Management Announces New Human Resources Internship Program at UNO

The New Orleans branch of the Society of Human Resources Management this month unveils a new Human Resources Internship Program through the University of New Orleans. The new internship program will begin with the upcoming Spring 2015 semester and is being offered to all junior and senior level students with concentrations in Human Resources and or students who are interested in pursuing HR as a career. The University of New Orleans offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Management, with a concentration in Human Resource Management.

The brand-new program is now recruiting employers to participate in the program, in which employers would then interview students in keeping with their normal selection/hiring process.  Employers will make offers and select interns on a first-to-extend-an-offer basis.

Parameters established by the program require that interns must be assigned a meaningful work experience and given a mentor/point person as their direct report. Student interns will be paid $10 an hour and they will be paid by the hiring employer through the regular payroll process. They will work a minimum of 150 hours, which is essentially 10 hours per week for 15 weeks. They may work more if mutually agreeable.

Completed internships will be worth three credit hours and interns will receive a grade for the course. Details will be provided by the faculty supervisors. NOLA SHRM will offer two $1,500 stipends to active chapter member employers for both the spring and fall semesters.  Stipends will be awarded on a first-to-request basis along with consideration of any previous stipends received.
