Creating a successful internship program at your company takes hard work, and is something you’ll continue to improve upon as the years progress.

As Karina Nagin, a woman dubbed the “intern whisperer” put it, “Interns take time and planning and thoughtfulness. However as long as you do it right, it can be a huge benefit.”

One of the most effective ways to improve upon your internship program? By soliciting feedback from the interns themselves.

We understand the importance of feedback, which is why we’ve made an internship survey to measure success so that you can repeat the strengths of your program and improve upon its weaknesses.

Sample Internship Survey

Although the program will be over when you distribute this survey, this is where you’ll get some of your most valuable feedback for the next time around. Your interns will know that you care enough to dive deep on how their experience was, and you’ll have constructive feedback to work with going forward.
