  • An HR staff member works with local colleges and universities to obtain referrals for students interested in and qualified for the particular project being offered;
  • The department’s intern supervisor receives the applications and resumes of intern candidates that have been pre-screened/pre-selected for placement; 
  • The department extends interview invitations to those candidates who are best qualified for the project;
  • After interviews are complete, the department directly notifies Human Resources and the selected candidate of his/her status.
