[SI Careers] 2009-10 PEP Internship Update - Please Read!

Dear SI Students,

Over the summer, the SI Career Development Office staff has reviewed and revised the PEP Internship Proposal Approval process, with the hopes of streamlining the process and making more effective use of the iTrack recruiting system. As a result, the system has now been migrated to iTrack and should prove to be a more simplified process for both you and your mentor.

If you plan on participating in a PEP credit-based internship for Fall 2009 internship, please read the instructions below carefully.

Once you have secured an internship offer, contact Kelly Kowatch at kkowatch@umich.edu. Please provide her with the following information:

--Name of Organization
--Name of Mentor/Supervisor
--Mentor/Supervisor’s email address and phone number

With your mentor, begin drafting a PEP Internship Proposal. A guide to draft a PEP Proposal can be found at http://si.umich.edu/outreach/mentors.htm

Because internship proposals must be submitted by your mentor, we will contact your mentor and initiate the PEP Internship proposal process within 3 business days. You will be copied on the message.

Note that you must have an established account and approved resume on iTrack in order for your mentor to submit a PEP Internship Proposal for you. Also, be sure to add the iTrack email address (umsi-csm@symplicity.com) to your Safe Senders list so that you do not miss out on an important email.

You will receive further instructions for your internship approval process as required.

Please bear with us during this transitory period as we may encounter a few workable kinks in our new system!
