Your project should describe (for educators and students) what your company does and what your goals are.
From there, the project page should be geared towards the type of project:
A good Project page will speak to Educators. It should...
- Be clear and identify a specific problem to be solved. Narrow down the pain point as much as possible, i.e. Social Media strategy as opposed to Marketing strategy.
- Be flexible in order to integrate well into the educator’s curriculum. Educators may ask to adjust things like deliverables to align with their syllabus.
- Provide learning value. The educator will assess if a project meets the learning outcomes for their course, but keep in mind that projects that offer students the opportunity to learn and get exposure to areas of your business will be more appealing.
- Be attainable within a 3-4 month window. If a project requires a longer term commitment than this, it's probably not the right fit.
Are you looking to work with students as a remote internship? If so, make sure you check off the following requirements.
- Be clear as to what the participant’s role and responsibilities will be. The project page should include details on what the intern’s day to day tasks will be.
- Be appropriate for their level of education. Since the students will be completing Bachelor, Masters or Continuing Education degrees, the intern’s role should be appropriate for those levels.
- Be targeted to one specialization. E.g. Marketing, Finance, etc.
- Be incentivized. You can choose whether it will be a paid internship (stipend, honorariums, etc.) or a credit bearing internship (usually unpaid). The minimum reward for any project is feedback.
