R.O.C.K. Internship Program Process

The ROCK Internship program outline is not set in stone. An Individual Development Plan (IDP) will be created for each program participant. It will serve as a valuable tool during the internship to set goals and plan resources to gain and make commitments. The IDP is a device that the intern and his/her supervisor can use to both communicate and clarify expectations. Throughout the Internship, written and oral test will be given in order to establish a greater comprehension and evaluate the level of understanding.

Program Characteristics

Each program will have the following characteristics:

IDPs will be designed around specific learning objectives for the intern. The learning objectives should include general management areas as well as technical skills and experiences that will qualify the intern for the target position at the end of the experience.
IDPs will clearly indicate how the learning objectives will be accomplished. Examples include: rotation details from Division to Division, Operation assignments, and/or Performance/Fitness training.
IDPs will be treated as planning documents to be reviewed periodically and revised as appropriate by your representative.
