Recruit Smart by Investing in Experiential Learning

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING programs are formal, supervised learning experiences that rely substantially on

students’ application of knowledge and information acquired from their academic program directly to real work. Experiential Learning should incorporate clear objectives of what the student will learn. If you feel like you have opportunities that are reflective of any of the programs below, consult with UWF Career Services.

SERVICE-BASED PROGRAMS Non-profit organizations have the ability to seek students as volunteers in addition to seeking Interns or CoOp candidates. The most common volunteer service-based programs are SERVICE LEARNING or FIELD STUDY. • Service Learning is a program component of a course for an individual or group with the experience connected to the academic course. • Field Study allows students to perform service in a field directly related to their major for 30, 60 or 90 hours of volunteer work.

INTERNSHIP An internship is most often a one semester experience that may or may not be for course credit. It may also be paid or non-paid; however, non-paid internships must comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Paid internship must comply with the minimum wage and overtime pay requirements under FLSA. House per week are determined by employer and intern for both types of internship positions.


Cooperative Education programs (CoOp) are multisemester experiences that are always paid and always for academic credit. Students may choose from two types of CoOps: parallel or alternating. A parallel CoOp student works and goes to schools at least 3 semesters in a row, averaging 15-25 hours per week at work and 9-12 academic credit hours (3-4 classes). An alternating CoOp student alternates between workplace and school semester by semester, working 40 hours a weekduring work terms and going to school full time during academic terms

Weighing the benefits : Internship & Cooperative Education • • • •


Both are intended to be learning experiences for the student Internships work well for short-term projects, typically only taking about 4 months to complete The commitment for the employer & student is shorter for interns CoOps work well for any organization looking to have an “intern” longer than a semester

Success Stories

In the Fall of 2011, UWF Career Services met with Cox Communications Human Resources to develop internship and CoOp programs. Among students selected by Cox Communications, Raul Martinez and Sergio Garcia have found success after completing the programs and graduating. Raul Martinez ‘12 Originally from Miami and majored in Marketing with a specialization in E-Commerce and a specialization in supply chain logistics. Raul worked as the Cox Marketing Intern. Raul’s experience paid off and he was recently selected as a full-time Media Consultant for Cox in Gainesville, FL. “I think that Cox Media is a great company to work for. The company culture is great and employees truly take interest in helping one another.” When asked on what advice he would give to UWF students, Raul said, “Get involved as much as possible. I joined the Lambda Beta Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity and was heavily involved with them throughout my course in college.” Raul was able to take the leadership and time management skills learned as Chapter President to Cox to make himself more valuable to the Company.


Sergio Garcia ‘11 Moved six years ago to the US from Peru with the goal of receiving a degree from an American university. He recently completed his degree in accounting from UWF, building on his previous background in economics. Sergio was selected for the Customer Care internship with Cox which led to a full time job as a Sales Operations Analyst of the Florida. In just 10 months with the company, Sergio applied to another position as a Financial Analyst at the Business Operations Department in the Cox Corporate office in Atlanta. He is moving to Atlanta and planning to begin working on a Master’s in Finance.

Legal Issues:

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division Fact Sheet #71: Internship Programs Under The Fair Labor Standards Act This fact sheet provides general information to help determine whether interns must be paid the minimum wage and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act for the services that they provide to “for-profit” private sector employers. Background The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) defines the term “employ” very broadly as including to “suffer or permit to work.” Covered and non-exempt individuals who are “suffered or permitted” to work must be compensated under the law for the services they perform for an employer. Internships in the “for-profit” private sector will most often be viewed as employment, unless the test described below relating to trainees is met. Interns in the “for-profit” private sector who qualify as employees rather than trainees typically must be paid at least the minimum wage and overtime compensation for hours worked over forty in a workweek. The Test For Unpaid Interns There are some circumstances under which individuals who participate in “for-profit” private sector internships or training programs may do so without compensation. The Supreme Court has held that the term “suffer or permit to work” cannot be interpreted so as to make a person whose work serves only his or her own interest an employee of another who provides aid or instruction. This may apply to interns who receive training for their own educational benefit if the training meets certain criteria. The determination of whether an internship or training program meets this exclusion depends upon all of the facts and circumstances of each such program. The following six criteria must be applied when making this determination: 1. The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment; 2. The internship experience is for the benefit of the intern; 3. The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff; 4. The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern; and on occasion its operations may actually be impeded; 5. The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship; and 6. The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship. * Law guidelines and information from the US Department of Labor: Wage and Hour Division (WHD)

Legal Issues:

UWF Recruiting Standards General Recruitment:

Career Services asks that employment professionals abide by the following guidelines. Employer representatives who do not act in accord to these guidelines could risk being blocked from recruitment and usage of services. Career Services at the University of West Florida follows the NACE, National Association of Colleges and Employers, Principles for Professional Conduct. (

Provide accurate information. Employment

professionals will supply accurate information on their organization and employment opportunities.

Maintain confidentiality. Employment professionals will maintain the confidentiality of student information.

Use assessment tools and tests appropriately.

Employment professionals must advise students/alumni in a timely manner of the type and purpose of any test that students/alumni will be required to take as part of the recruitment process.

Third-party recruiting agency policy. If you are a third-

party recruiter posting a job for a client, it is necessary to disclose the client name for which you are recruiting in the Job Description Box. All positions posted by thirdparty recruiters without the client name will be deleted from the JasonQuest system. Third-party recruiters are eligible to participate in the Career Services events if they are recruiting for their own organization or if they state the organizations they are representing at the time of the fair.

How to:

Write an effective job description A well-written job description contains a few common elements. Those elements are task and knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) statements. Task statements are the essential duties of a job and KSAs are required to adequately perform those tasks. Examples of potential task statements for a sales manager position might include: Oversees regional sales managers by communicating daily via telephone, email, facsimile machine, and in person (e.g., traveling to store locations on a monthly basis) in order to ensure smooth operation of sales branches.

Plans budgets for each sales branch by using Quickbooks and Microsoft Excel to analyze balance sheets and projections, while meeting with branch managers collectively and individually to discuss the allocation of resources so as to increase profits company-wide.

Task statements answer the questions what is the action, to whom or what is the action directed, how is it accomplished, and why is the task performed? When writing task statements, it is important to ensure that they represent bona fide occupational qualifications to comply with labor laws. A method commonly employed by human resource professionals to develop legally defensible tasks and KSAs is the job analysis. A few online resources that may help to develop task statements and KSAs are O*Net and the Occupational Outlook Handbook. These websites may serve as a guide to help formulate and tailor your job descriptions. Also, the following link to a job description writer may provide some additional guidance: Please contact Career Services for more information.
