All students must thoroughly read the Student Employment Handbook (PDF) prior to starting their internships. Interns are paid through the University of Rochester Center for Entrepreneurship and are considered student employees. Please consult and abide by the Student Employment Handbook.
Interns will report time via the University of Rochester's Human Resources Management System (HRMS).
Full-time interns may work up to 12 hours/day (with a mandatory 30-minute or 1-hour unpaid lunch break), for a total of no more than 40 hours/week, over 10 weeks, for a total of 400 hours. Part-time interns may work up to 12 hours/day for a total of no more than 20 hours/week, over 10 weeks, for a total of 200 hours. If an intern, whether F/T or P/T, works more than 6 hours/day, a mandatory 30-minute, unpaid break is required.
Please keep the following guidelines in mind when reporting your time:
Interns are not permitted to enter time during hours that will result in overtime pay. Situations resulting in overtime pay are as follows:
If a project or task arises which results in an overtime situation, interns must acquire the written approval of their supervisor and submit it to the Center for Entrepreneurship.
Interns are required to attend a mid-summer check-in meeting at the Center for Entrepreneurship. The Center will contact the interns to schedule this meeting.
Interns are required to electronically submit a written summary of their internship experience (2 - 5 pages) due at the end of September to the Center for Entrepreneurship.
Interns are strongly encouraged to attend a Meet & Greet with the alumni entrepreneurs who sponsor this program. This is a great networking opportunity and usually takes place in October following the summer of the internship or May of the following year. The Center will contact the interns to schedule this meeting.
