Agenda for Internship II

Internship II
November 9, 2010

SIGN IN
Be sure to sign in.

YELLOW BOOK
If you do *not* yet have a yellow book, please take one.

Note: If you already have a yellow book—even if you haven’t brought it with you today—then please do not take another. We are budgeted for one book per student. Therefore, if you already have a copy from our last meeting, please use that.

Please note that the yellow book is also available in its entirety on the English Department website as a PDF file. Get it; read it.

EXTENDED DEADLINE
Due to extenuating circumstances, we have extended the deadline for submitting Internship Applications to Friday, December 3.

Here is the specific language: “In order to be eligible for the deadline extension to Friday, December 3, applicants must otherwise be entirely eligible and must have completed all other portions of the Internship Application (including attendance at both internship sessions, determination of academic eligibility, and an oral agreement with a faculty supervisor). Students must also be engaged actively in the process of finding an internship, meaning phone calls have been made and emails sent (evidence to be provided, upon request, to faculty supervisor). If the final application is not completed and received by the KU English Department before noon on Friday, December 3, it will be rejected.”

REGISTER NOW FOR PRO SEM!
Don’t wait to register for Pro Sem! Even if you have not yet submitted your internship application, you should still register for Pro Sem ASAP.

SUBMIT INTERNSHIP APPLICATIONS ASAP
Don't wait until December 3 to submit your Internship Applications. Submit them as they are completed.
