How will I be notified if I was chosen for an internship placement?

The Intern Coordinator, is the point of contact for ANR’s internship program. They will notify students if they were submitted for an internship, called for an interview, or placed for an internship. Selected students will be contacted by phone.


What is the selection process?

Our client sends ANR an intern requisition. The requisition provides the criteria for that position such as major, class standing and work scope. Students are then screened against the intern requisition criteria. ANR selects several students for each requisition and those student’s applications and resumes are submitted to the client for review. The client reviews the applications and resumes, completes the interview process and then selects the student for the internship. Once the student has been selected by the client, ANR calls the student to extend the offer of employment.

The pay rates vary greatly depending upon what company you are assigned to, your major, class standing, previous work experience, and GPA.
