Career & Internship Programs

Thank you for your interest in serving as an intern at Orange Lutheran High School! The on-campus Internship Program will provide you with a tremendous opportunity to gain real world experience and learn more about careers and professional life.

Students are challenged to undergo an application and screening process which is intended to mirror the experience one would encounter during a job search, including the submission of a resume and cover letter. Applicants are selected based on their commitment to the stated internship goals and time requirements, the quality of their character, and eagerness to be mentored by a professional in their chosen career cluster. Although some internship positions require previous experience and a foundation of knowledge and education, all students are encouraged to apply and gain the experience they will receive from going through the process of applying and interviewing for an internship position.  

All interns will be provided with the training and mentorship necessary to be successful in their position. Internship providers are selected based on their commitment to mentoring students and cultivating skills that can be utilized in post-secondary education and career advancement. Students will work with their mentor and the Director of Career & Internship Program to create S.M.A.R.T. Goals (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, tangible).  These goals will be evaluated and tracked throughout the duration of the internship, culminating in a review and exit interview which will provide constructive feedback of internship performance. Additionally, every intern will have a formal job description, documented service, and measurable outcomes that can be “taken with them” when seeking future internship and career opportunities. Moreover, students who complete the internship requirements will receive academic elective credit (.25 per semester) and their position title will be listed on their official transcript.

The Orange Lutheran on campus internship program relies heavily on one of the most critical components of any internship program; mentorship. Cultivating the mentor/mentee relationship is a cornerstone of the program and all positions utilize this as a basis for evaluating the success of the experience and the stated internship goals and objectives. Only those providers that are willing to commit to mentorship will be chosen to supervise an intern on campus.

We are recruiting students who are both eager to learn and prepared to commit to the internship duties and time requirements. Only those students who can make a semester or year-long commitment will be considered for placement.  I want to encourage all students to review the job descriptions carefully and prayerfully consider applying. I am confident that this experience will be a rich and meaningful exercise that will assist in developing your personal and professional goals. If you have additional questions regarding these opportunities, or need assistance completing the application requirements, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.  

Sincerely,

Doug Erickson
