Overview

THE SUCCESSFUL INTERNSHIP: PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND CIVIC DEVELOPMENT, 4th Edition, offers you more than just a resource for how to find a position or how to interview. It addresses the concerns, emotions, needs, and unique personal challenges that are the essence of an internship or field experience, and focuses on the internship as a vehicle for your development as a civic professional. The authors describe in detail the path of change you'll find yourself embarking on and the challenges you'll face along the way. A four-stage model of the internship process—anticipation, exploration, competence, and culmination—places the material in a meaningful framework that lends structure to your understanding of the work you'll be doing. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
