  • The steps during your internship assignment


    Meetings with your supervisor and your company coach

    Ideally you meet your company coach once a week to discuss your progress. Meet (either off line or online) your supervisor around three times during your internship assignment (e.g. at the start, halfway, and at the end of your internship). This meeting might be together with other internship students supervised by the same supervisor.


    Find solutions to the problem and develop the implementation plan

    The first half of your internship is about further fine tuning your assignment. Next to that you will start searching for solutions and you develop an implementation plan. Make sure to stay in close contact with both your company coach as well as your supervisor., and make sure you present your solution to the company and discuss what part will be implemented.


    Implement (part of) the solutions and reflect on the implementation

    Now it's time to implement (part of) your solution. Make sure to measure and reflect on the results.

    Please note: you may interpret 'implementation' rather broadly. The idea is that your solutions do not end up in a drawer but that you really try to make in impact at the company (however small).
