TCC interns work in a temporary position with an emphasis on education and experience. Interns range in age from young adults to those later in life who may be seeking new career skills. Internships can pave the way to employment opportunities, including part-time and full-time paid positions.

Supervising an intern requires employee time and talent. Benefits to hosting an intern include:

  • Access to students who are enthusiastic about learning
  • Chance to mold employees by helping them gain management experience
  • Company name recognition on TCC’s campus
  • Facilitated links between your business and TCC for potential research, teaching and recruitment opportunities
  • Increased number of students who stay in the community post-graduation
  • Opportunity to assess the capacities of a potential employee

Invite an Eagle to Shadow

Post a Job Shadowing Opportunity
The EagleShadow Program is a process that connects students with
one-day shadowing opportunities for career exploration and a sneak peek into their future!

Due to COVID-19, we will be placing students into job shadowing opportunities throughout the fall 2020 semester. 
We will work with companies, individually, on the best day/time for both you and the student. 
Please post a one-day job shadowing opportunity for an Eagle in TCC FutureLink.

Why take an Eagle to Work?
Benefits for EagleShadow Hosts include:

  • Giving back: your advice as a professional is invaluable to students wishing to gain information about their future career field. Pay it forward by sharing insight of your industry with the next generation. 
  • Building your brand: the EagleShadow Program introduces students to your organization and its commitment to developing the future workforce. Then, once returning to campus, EagleShadow grads can act as a brand ambassador for your organization. 
  • Recruiting TCC talent: you may find your next star intern through the EagleShadow program! Student participants who have insider knowledge of your organization will be excited to apply for full-time or internship opportunities within your organization.  

We ask EagleShadow Hosts to have student participants shadow employees as they move throughout their normal responsibilities so they can get a true feel for a typical work day in the host’s organization.  

Important details for posting a job shadowing experience .

Hosts can choose which activities they would like the EagleShadow participant to experience such as:

  • Conduct informational interviews with a variety of employees
  • Participate in a guided tour of the facility
  • Attend meetings or company events/activities
  • Observe and ask questions while shadowing daily tasks
  • Participate during interactions with clients
  • Lunch with company staff
  • Learn about career/internship opportunities within the organization

Whatever activities are selected, we recommend communicating an engaging and exciting description, as you complete the host form. This is what our students will see as they decide which shadow opportunity to choose.  If you need help creating an appealing shadow description, please contact us at eagleshadow@tcc.fl.edu.

Students who participated in a job shadowing experience:

  • Practiced their professional networking skills
  • Were better equipped to choose a major/career field, that is right for them
  • Landed internship/job opportunities (not every participant)
  • Kept in contact with their host, to utilize as a professional contact in the future

TCC Internship Program
Research by the National Association of College and Employers (NACE) indicates that applicants with internship experience enjoy a significant advantage in the percentage of full-time job offers received over their non-intern competitors. Graduates who completed an internship were 20% more likely to have a job at graduation. Encourage students to score some hands-on, real-world experience by completing the Internship Program Interest form in FutureLink.

NACE Career Readiness Competencies  

NACE Defines Career Readiness, Identifies Key Competencies
The career readiness of college graduates is an important issue in higher education, in the labor market, and in the public arena. yet, up until now, "career readiness" has been undefined, making it difficult for leaders in higher education, workforce development, and public policy to work together effectively to ensure the career readiness of today's graduates.

The National Association of Colleges and Employers, through a task force of college career services and HR/staffing professionals, has developed a definition, based on extensive research among employers, and identified eight competencies associated with career readiness.

Definition of Career Readiness and Competencies
Career readiness is the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace.

These competencies are:

  • Critical Thinking/Problem Solving
  • Oral/Written Communications
  • Teamwork/Collaboration
  • Digital Technology
  • Leadership
  • Professionalism/Work Ethic
  • Career Management
  • Global/Intercultural Fluency
