The SSSI-SA Surveying Internship Program represents a great opportunity for students to investigate an alternative career path in surveying, and survey firms to investigate talent on offer. This will lay the foundation for an ongoing professional mentoring relationship and potential employment opportunity.

  • Provide a company and worksite orientation that clarifies internal rules, operating procedures, and expectations
  • Assist in skill development and answer questions
  • Provide adequate training and supervision to make the internship a meaningful experience
  • Evaluate the intern and provide regular feedback
  • Provide a final evaluation at the conclusion of the internship to discuss the intern’s performance and accomplishments, and also to identify strengths and opportunities for continued development
  • Offer to keep in touch after the internship experience to support him/her as a reference, and potentially offer support as a mentor.

  • Provide a written statement (maximum 200 words) outlining how the degree program you are currently studying supports your aspirations.
