UCD conducts a skype interview with each student to review their CV and ascertain their skills and placement interests.
UCD matches students to roles based on their academic background, skills and experience and the requirements outlined in the Job Description. UCD will send you details of your matched candidate by mid-May.
UCD requires host companies to complete an online Host Internship Agreement around Mid-May before the internship commences.
Ahead of the 2020 internship commencing, interns attend a placement meeting in the company offices on Wednesday, June 10th (PM). The purpose of this meeting is to meet with line management and relevant staff to discuss the job responsibilities and reporting structures.
Placements commence on Monday, June 15th. Students work during office hours from Monday to Thursday with Friday free for classes at UCD. Students complete their placements on Thursday, July 23rd.
During the internship you may be asked to facilitate a site visit or provide feedback on the intern’s progress. At the end of the process you will be asked to evaluate the student’s performance and to complete a short survey on your experience of the programme. We also send out a short survey in late July to gather employer feedback on their overall experience of the programme.
