THE SUCCESSFUL INTERNSHIP: PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND CIVIC DEVELOPMENT, 3e, is more than just a resource for finding and interviewing for internships; it addresses the concerns, emotions, needs, and unique personal challenges that are the essence of an internship or field experience and focuses on the internship as a vehicle for civic development, in addition to personal and professional development. The authors describe in detail the path of change on which students will find themselves embarking and the challenges they will face along the way; the authors provide clear, concrete tools that build the foundation for students’ successful field/practicum experience. The book’s five-stage model of the internship process--anticipation, disillusionment, confrontation, competence, and culmination--places the material in a meaningful framework that lends structure to students’ understanding of the work they will be doing.
