Drawing from a variety of theoretically grounded sources, personal experiences in the advisement and supervision of interns and internship programs, and student and practitioner-based feedback, Making the Most of Your Internship provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of vital strategies associated with the internship.

The book adopts an action-oriented approach by focusing on the “how-to” aspects of the internship experience while stressing the important and influential role of the internal (i.e., needs, constraints, interests, etc.) and external (i.e., trends, issues, job-related factors, etc.) environments in the internship planning, selection, and management phases.

The authors have taught at the higher education level. They have experience guiding and directing students internships and have researched areas such as human resource management functions.

The primary audience for this book is undergraduate students who have aspirations to complete an internship experience in the recreation, sport, and tourism industries. More specifically, it is intended as a desk aid to help instructors prepare students for the internship and as a textbook for students. This book may also be of interest to recreation, sport, and tourism professionals who engage in their own career planning, supervise interns, or have an interest in developing an internship program for their agency.
