Position Summary: Nevada State College (NSC) invites applications for the position of Internship Manager. The Internship Manager serves as a lead for internship services at Nevada State College by managing the employer relations, faculty relations and student development components of the internship program. Reporting to the Director of Career Services and in collaboration with the academic leadership, the Internship Manager is responsible for providing expert assistance and coaching to students, employers, and faculty regarding the development and management of the internship program.
Because the internship program is still a relatively new program on campus, this role will see shifts in its duties and an expansion of responsibilities as both the internship program and Career Services Center grows and develops on campus. The Internship Manager will need to have a “can-do” attitude and embrace developing and growing the internship program, while also participating in various other levels of the center. The Internship Manager will also support the Director of Career Services and must possess independent judgment and decision making; superb communication skills, writing capabilities, and organizational skills; problem solving; strategic planning and programming; campus and community collaborations; and strong knowledge in quality internship management and regulations.
