International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (12th, Maynooth, Greater Dublin, Ireland, Oct 24-26, 2015)
The undergraduate Business and Human Development (HD) Departments at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM), are collaborating in an innovative interdisciplinary approach to supporting internships with local businesses in order to provide college seniors with experiences in the area of career development known as the "Senior Experience." Three local companies associated with serving the community in the area of healthcare or counseling, will hire a team of 5 college seniors (3 Business majors and 2 HD majors) to create a project for the company. The selected project will be agreed upon and supervised by both the company and university representatives from both departments. This paper will reflect on the literature base pertaining to creating a successful collaborative interdisciplinary internship for college seniors exploring possible career options.
