Engagement Area Specific Questions: Internship

What are the steps for using my internship for Garnet and Gold Scholar Society recognition?

There are two ways your internship can be given recognition for the purpose of Garnet and Gold Scholar Society: Complete an internship for academic credit OR complete the Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP). Designate on your application which option you plan to choose and once your application is approved, follow the subsequent steps to reflect on your experience.

To complete your reflections you will need to have your application approved and be given access to your personalized GGSS student portal located on myFSU. In the student portal you will designate which of the two options you have or will complete.

For an internship that is completed for academic credit, check the box that states this option in the GGSS student portal and answer the reflection questions located on the page.

If you are in the process of completing the Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP) you will check the box that states this option and complete program assignments. These assignments include an Application, a Mid-Semester Report, a Self-Evaluation, and a Program Evaluation. If you have further questions about these assignments, contact CC-Gain-Experience@fsu.edu .

What should I put on my Application for the Internship Engagement Area?

You should indicate whether you have already interned or if you plan to in the future.

For a past internship, indicate which semester it was done and the company you interned for. Remember, in order to be given credit for previous internships you must have completed ERP while the internship was taking place OR you must have done an internship for academic credit and be able to show proof of that experience through your academic transcript.

For a future internship, indicate which semester you plan to intern. State whether it will be for academic credit or if you will complete the Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP).

PLEASE NOTE: The Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP) must be completed during the semester of your experiential learning opportunity. 

Do I have to fill out the reflection essays on the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society website if I pursue the Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP) option?

No. You will complete an Application, a Mid-Semester Report, a Self-Evaluation, and a Program Evaluation through this program in Handshake. Those will count as your reflections for GGSS. You will only need to go into the GGSS portal and choose the ERP option by your posted deadline. This is considered your reflection.

Can I use an internship through the Experience Recognition Program (ERP) transcript option for Garnet and Gold Scholar Society?

Yes. The internship is or will be recorded on your transcript as a non-credit course e.g., ACG3949, ENG3949, CIS3949, etc. You will select the Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP) transcript option in your Garnet and Gold Scholar Society online portal.

PLEASE NOTE: You must apply for Career Center Experience Recognition Program (ERP) transcript option prior to the end of the drop/add period for the semester you complete your internship in order to enroll in the program.

What are the deadlines for completing the Experience Recognition Program (ERP) certificate option?

Your Supervisor will also be asked to fill out a Student Performance Evaluation at the end of your experience. The Career Center strongly encourages you to discuss this evaluation with your supervisor in order to get constructive feedback regarding your performance.

When you successfully complete all steps of ERP certificate option, a Certificate of Completion will be awarded via Handshake.
